If I were a collector aiming to purchase one French Bebe this fall, I would skip the waiting game and simply purchase the best of the best of the best up front and scoop this Paris Bebe off the market. We have had so much pre-sale interest in this girl, I know that she will be gone very, very soon! This is the post-lawsuit example of the doll (the more desirable) made by Jumeau after Danel attempted to copy his classic Tete Jumeau. Jumeau made a few changes to the Paris Bebe before producing a small run of these rare dolls, including giving her those chubby cheeks, delightfully pointed nose, and petite chin. The Jumeau Paris Bebe is known to have the clearest, most exciting character features, and this example does not disappoint. An extra bonus is that she comes on the distinctive Danel Paris Bebe body with the iconic Eiffel Tower stmp. This is because, after Emile Jumeau won the lawsuit against Danel for copywrite infringement, Jumeau seized all of the Danel stock and continued to use the Danel bodies for his own Paris Bebes—Thus, the Jumeau head on the Danel body. She is Museum Quality, as far as we are concerned! She comes with our highest level of gifts and guarantees, because she is an extraordinary, five star French Bebe we may never see again.
