What a delightful expression this precious all antique Bebe Jumeau has! She seems so excited to meet you. Dressed in her sweet antique pink cotton frock, with bouffant blouson, insertion lace trim and frilly lace edging. In her original golden blond human hair wig and her "Bee" stamped size 9 Jumeau shoes and socks, this bebe is appointed with many of her factory assets from the day she was born at the Jumeau factory in Paris, France circa 1895! Oh my, and I forgot to mention her wonderful antique milk glass drop earrings. What a real treasure she is in her white straw chapeau with flowers.
This charming doll must have brought hours of amusement to her Victorian family! And how lucky are we to have the pleasure of re-imagining and reliving that moment here in the 21st century?—More than 100 years after she was produced by Jumeau circa 1895!
~This sweet big girl is available on layaway! Take up to 8 months to pay for her. She will await her new home in our layaway cabinet, and the months will simply fly by!~
