Everything about this stunning Bru girl is somehow soft. One just longs to hug her, to touch those gently blushed cheeks and stare into her mesmerizing blue eyes. Antique blond mohair locks wave gently around her face beneath a rose silk hat with applied lace and curling feathers. The hat matches her incredible frock: warm rose silk with creamy, delicate lace overlay and a pleated skirt and sash. An ornate Victorian gold crescent moon completes the ensemble, and she's ready to reign as the princess of your collection- and your heart! An outstanding example in her rose silk bebe dress, we just don't have enough words to describe this wonderful girl's costume and undergarments, chapeau- but above all her wonderful face. With the most desirable, dramatic Leon Casimir Bru trademark face, this bebe has the careful modeling and expression of a cherub, about to bestow a kiss upon her favorite friend. Those watery blue eyes hold so many secrets, her soft, generous lips seem as though they are about to turn up into a delicate smile... I am utterly in love with this doll, and I know that her new mamma or papa will be equally elated with her outstanding quality, presentation, and overall beauty.

On forehead head: Bte SGDG
On plate: N 6 BRU JNE
CONDITION: Excellent. Flawless bisque head with lovely bisque, deep and crisp modeling and superb painting of a very desirable French Bebe doll circa 1875. She has the smoothest, most beautiful bisque with sensitive and delicate painting of features, very crisp modeling of captivating face with exquisite modeling around the eyes and characteristic circle dot mouth.
The bisque lower arms with delicately modeled hands also in excellent condition. The kid body in sturdy condition with just some reinforcement of kid at the plate and the hip gussets. Also, the stuffing has settled into the legs making them bend somewhat and there are stitch repairs at the hip gussets. This is very typical for these earlier Bru bodies
