One of my favorite French bebes, this beautiful doll is simply a piece of history! From her inquisitive expression, to her wonderful midnight blue dress and lovely golden human hair wig, she's amazing. A darling princess on her chunky original French body all ready for a very special occasion.

She has a bisque socket head on a fully jointed FRENCH composition and wood French doll body with jointed wrists. Beautiful DEEP blue original/paperweight sleep eyes with painted lower lashes and real upper lashes, feathered and molded brows, open mouth with four upper teeth, pierced ears with beautiful blue bead earrings, pretty golden blond French human hair wig with wonderful curls.
Dressed in a wonderful antique-style midnight blue shimmering silk dress with dropped waist, shirred bodice, two tiered skirt with cream lace and insertion ribbon and matching flounce at the upper bodice and shoulders with light blue insertion ribbons, big silk bows at the hips in matching midnight blue silk, matching half slip underneath, antique cream cotton pantaloons, antique black stockings, antique black French leather shoes, antique horsehair and straw bonnet with long ties and applied flowers. A superb presentation for a wonderful antique DEP Jumeau doll!
MARKS: DEP 13
CONDITION: Excellent. A pepper speck at the bridge of her nose and another under the left inside eye plus some minor flakes at the ear pierce holes. Otherwise she has good quality smooth bisque with pleasant coloring, delicate painting of features. Crisp modeling of the very pretty dolly face. The original chunky French body in sturdy condition but with an old repaint, repairs to the joint areas (flaking of paint at the neck socket of the torso), and the pinky finger of the right hand rebuilt. These are minor issues that affect dolls when they are over 100 years old. What a charming French girl. A veritable Sweetheart! LBK-7-8-2016
