Something about this Louvre Bebe hints at mystery. Perhaps she's poring over a book she just found at the library, some ancient Latin text that contains a dark secret. Light rain bounces off the straw bonnet with cream lace trim that protects her luxuriant golden curls, but her shining blue eyes remain fixed on the book. Her frock is subtly elegant, deep blue with fine lace accents- just the thing for a day of searching through shelves with Paris' best-dressed. Will she crack the case in time? Bring her home and find out. What a sweet cabinet-sized French Bebe with the most delicate expression and stunning bebe costume! And look at those luscious golden curls! Not to mention her wonderful ocean blue blue original paperweight eyes, and her slightly puckered closed mouth. Wow what a treat she is!

CONDITION: Excellent. The exquisite head with fine quality pale bisque, expert painting of delicate features, crisp modeling. A small inherent dent to the right of the nose tip does not detract. The body in clean and sturdy condition with only very minor flaking to the fingers and toes. Teeny flecks to the ear pierce holes. This wonderful French Bebe was made exclusively by Jumeau to be sold in the Au Louvre department store in Paris circa 1890. We are certain that this Jumeau will be a treasured family heirloom!
