Fifteen can be such a difficult age- especially when you're an elite undercover spy! This Jumeau girl blends in perfectly with the crowd as she tails her quarry through the streets of Bayeux, ducking down medieval alleyways to keep on the heels of the mysterious lady. Her blue eyes sparkle with the thrill of the chase, framed by original golden locks in an elegant braided style. Her original gray-green silk walking costume is the height of fashion, with a shirred bodice, delicate lace trim, and a short skirt befitting her youth. Will she catch the thief and solve the case? Bring her home and find out!
Gaze into those large and loving eyes with their vibrant blue irises staring longingly into the distance—perhaps conjuring a long lost memory. Her delicate young lady’s features with finely painted and expertly modeled details denoting a lady of the higher gentry in Victorian society. She is dressed in the latest fashion of the day, consisting of her original silk “enfantine” walking ensemble in deep olive gray silk with shirred front and back center sections on the jacket, creating a superbly fitted figure, and the suit is completes with a sweet knife-pleated skirt. Her head is crowned with a sweet chapeau bedecked in complimentary flowers.

She has a bisque socket head mounted on a bisque shoulder-plate. Her original body is made of stuffed kid-skin with straight legs and straight arms terminating in individually stitched and wired fingers and stamped Jumeau on the back. She has pale blue paperweight eyes and painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brows, and a delicate molded closed mouth with blushed lips and accent lines, on an overall pale complexion with delicately blushed cheeks and pierced ears with pretty antique turquoise and pink glass bead earrings. She wears her original blond mohair wig over her original cork pate.
She wears her all original beautiful antique costume, undergarments and shoes. Her dark olive silk walking suit with long tapered jacket fits her beautifully. The coat has a lovely taper to it, flaring at the bottom along with the skirt -- this truly was made just for her! Underneath are her original undergarments including her cotton chemise with lace trim at the open collar and short sleeve edges, a perfectly fitted petticoat and a beautiful original pair of cotton pantaloons with drawstring waist and lace edged hem. Her antique white cotton knit socks are woven in a lacy net pattern so desirable in these fashion dolls and she is shod in her original deep teal leather high-button boots with two buttons each. A vintage chapeau bedecked in cloth flowers. This little lady wouldn’t dream of leaving her house without her fashionable antique beaded purse affixed to her dress. She is certainly in a class all by her own.
Marks: 1 [back of head, incised] -blue Jumeau stamp on back of kidskin torso: JUMEAU MEDAILLE D’OR PARIS
Condition: She has a very faint hairline to the forehead, with a tiny chip at the point where it meets the rim of the head. She also has a tiny factory-inherent flake at the back of the plate, by the neck socket; this doesn't affect her value, however, as this was a factory-inherent flaw. Other than this, she is a wonderful and stunning all original lady, free of any other issues such as other hairlines, or restoration. She has pleasant modeling and painting of features, with bright and vibrant paperweight eyes that are so full of life. The body is exquisite, having held up well over the many years, especially for a kidskin body. The stamp on the back is still very visible, a desirable attribute. The original ensemble is simply fabulous; this lady is truly breathtaking!
