What a deliciously sweet, lilliputian bebe we have for your purchasing pleasure today! One of the sweetest DEP dolls I have seen, this delightful example has the cutest modeling of the cheeks with a powdery finish to the bisque and stunning French sleeping eyes with fully intact original lashes, which makes her an irresistible example. Slip her in your cabinet when no one is looking, or carry her in your pocket all day long for constant doll fun! What a perfect little darling she is, possessing that early sculpting, her antique dress and fluffy mohair wig with pretty rose bows--You just can't go wrong. I can't imagine a more perfect bebe for the beginning collector, or the seasoned connoisseur who sees the value of these wonderful S&H dolls for the French trade as they continue to go up in value and desirability. A new generation of doll collectors is discovering how these rare and beautiful Simon & Halbig heads supplied to Jumeau for production of French Bebes in France and often stamped with the Tete Jumeau stamp are truly desirable in today's doll market. Get her before she is marked "Sale Pending."
