What a delightful expression this precious antique Bebe Jumeau has! She seems so excited to meet you. Dressed in her sweet antique cream and rose cotton print dress, with bouffant blouson, dropped waist, and fancy two tiered self ruffles on the skirt. In her original golden brown human hair wig and original cork pate, this bebe is well appointed to attend any fancy occasion. Made in France circa 1895, she is a valid representative of the fashions of her day!! Oh my, and did I forget to mention her wonderful faux pearl drop earrings and her sumptuous red leather reproduction Jumeau shoes? What a real treasure she is in her red felt chapeau with applied 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!~

Beautiful BIG chocolate brown paperweight eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke feathered, thick brows, open mouth with shading and accents and six upper teeth, pierced ears with antique faux pearl and glass bead drop earrings, original honey brown human hair wig over her original cork pate.
Wearing a lovely antique cream and rose cotton print dress, antique undergarments, cream cotton knit socks, and lovely read lather reproduction Jumeau shoes stamped 11. The red felt chapeau is a vintage addition to her costume.
CONDITION: Excellent. The beautiful head with pale and fine quality bisque, pleasant rich color, expert painting of delicate features, crisp modeling of gorgeous Jumeau classic face with a slightly smiling expression. There is a flake to one tooth and a small rub to the left cheek. The flake to the tooth has been temporarily repaired with a cardboard tooth and painted over. This can be seen in the lead shots. The actual tooth flake is shown in the face shot without the hair. Please examine all photos for accuracy. Her Original Jumeau body in excellent, sturdy condition but with typical wear and flaking at the joints and one armhole on the torso having been rebuilt. What a darling Jumeau bebe!
