A classic Jumeau, this beauty has a sweet disposition and is so pretty in dressed in blue. She looks quite ready for the coming winter in her beautiful crisp and frilly dress, and lacy white bonnet; but what I love most are those eyes. Big, blue and as deep as an ocean, they will simply draw you into their depths and not let you go! Not to mention her wonderful French blond human hair wig and her antique black oilcloth shoes, she’s ready to add some French “je ne sais quoi” to your collection! I just love her, and know that she will be off to her new home in a flash at this reduced price (due to her hidden damage which translates into an opportunity for the buyer with champagne taste on a beer bottle budget!)
~This wonderful bebe Jumeau is available on layaway! Take up to 8 months to pay for her. Give our office a call at 718.859.0901 to hear an in hand description of her fabulous condition, or to discuss layaway terms. Or just send our office an email.~
Bisque socket head on a fully jointed and original French composition and wood doll body. Wonderful watery blue paperweight / sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke brows, open mouth with shading and accents and six upper teeth, pierced ears, long French blond human hair wig. Wearing an attractive vintage blue and white dotted Swiss dress with ruffled lace edges, antique full slip, antique pantaloons, antique cream net stockings and her antique black oilcloth shoes. Such a darling presentation.
MARKS: DEPOSE TETE JUMEAU 10 (tic marks)
CONDITION: There is restoration to the forehead that does not disrupt the facial features except for the corner of the left brow—See trans-illuminated photos). Otherwise she has fine quality bisque with a creamy complexion, gentle blushing, expert painting of features and very crisp modeling. The original Jumeau body has the original finish but there is some typical flaking to the left lower arm and both hands are repainted. Please view all photos. I can normally sell a perfect Jumeau such as this one for over $2500. This a beautiful Tete Jumeau bebe with the most enchanting eyes is being offered at a very discounted price. Take a chance on her—you won’t regret it!
