She is SO DREAMY! Spouses- take note! If you have been waiting to get your special someone that special something, chances are they've been dropping hints that they want a genuine French Jumeau Bebe. Because, let's be honest... who doesn't? Look no further; I can assure you that whether you are buying for yourself, your wife, your mom, your daughter, your husband or son, or possibly as a nest egg for your grandchild- I have never met a doll lover that does not appreciate a beautiful blue eyed Jumeau! Her delicately sweet face draws you in immediately upon first view. This is THE LOOK that made Jumeau famous. A super-stunning closed mouth Tete Jumeau Bebe, this classic beauty boasts gorgeous bulbous blue paperweight eyes, antique honey blond human hair wig, an original Jumeau body and a sensuous pink silk bebe dress with fine lace details. Take the time to look this beauty over, but be careful, you may be swept away and sorely disappointed if she goes home to another. More photographs are available upon request.
~She is offered on our layaway plan. Take up to eight months to pay. Given the amount of interest we have had lately in these beautiful girls, this exquisite model will probably be gone soon, so if you're waiting for your top shelf Jumeau, grab her up before she's gone! She even ships for free anywhere in the continental USA.
She has a bisque socket head on a fully jointed Jumeau body. Lovely bulbous blue paperweight eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke brows, closed-mouth, shading and accents to lips, pierced ears with lovely antique shell and glass bead earrings, a super antique Victorian gold filled brooch, and an antique hand tied French human hair wig.
She is wearing a a sweet and delicate pale pink silk dropped waist dress (what little girl doesn't look precious in pink?). She also wears lovely antique white cotton underwear (see photos), antique olive cotton knit socks and reproduction Jumeau style brown leather shoes with rosettes. She is topped off with a beautiful, antique silk hat (some wear). What an outstanding Jumeau she is!
MARKS: DEPOSE Bte S. G. D. G. TETE JUMEAU 8 (tic Marks)
CONDITION: There is a hairline on the right forehead (see photo) extending into the right upper eye cut with a chip on the upper forehead alongside the hairline. Otherwise, she has a gorgeous head with fine quality bisque, expert painting of delicate features, crisp modeling of very endearing, classic Jumeau face. The original body is in good condition with typical age wear and some age soiling to the hands and legs and an old repaint. Paint flaking is also apparent on the body and hands. I never cease to fall in love with these French beauties! These gorgeous Jumeaux Bebes are getting harder and harder to find!
*Please note that the price shown for this doll was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. If perfect, this Jumeau would retail for $4000. The doll’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
