Petite Darling 11" German Belton-Type to Emulate The French Jumeau Bebe in Cute Bebe Costume
As the train pulls into the Gare de l'Est station, this darling girl bounces in her seat. It's her first time in Paris, and she's so excited! Just imagine her tugging on Mama's hand, brown eyes darting about to see every beautiful detail of the Champs Élysées. She'll have no trouble fitting in among her Jumeau cousins in her elegant frock with its delicate antique lace, shirred bodice, and matching hat perched just so atop her pale gold curls. At the end of a long day, let her come home to your parlor and tell all of her adventures!
This adorable little Belton girl we have here just can't wait to find a new home! We've treated her with nothing but love while she's been in our stock, but we both know she needs to find a long-term home, and a loving parent to care for her. She's ready to be displayed proudly in your collection cabinet, to be shown off to your doll-lover friends, or to be taken out and played with for hours on end! Her presentation is so French, as is that adorable expression -- just look at those huge chocolate brown eyes! Pale bisque, golden curls, and a sweet costume all combine to make one exceptional cutie, who can't be overstated. A little French market dolly like this is a MUST for any experienced collector, and whether you have been collecting dolls for years, or are just getting into the swing of things, this little girl would make an excellent addition to any collection. Do not waste another moment -- she's available on layaway, so what are you waiting for?!
