If you still don't have a Jumeau bebe in your collection, you are missing out on one of the quintessential dolls in the antique doll world! Why not consider this darling example in a nice chunky size with blue paperweight eyes and a stunning antique style Bebe frock made by a very talented seamstress! Dressed in a burnt umber gross-grain silk frock with contrasting forest green velvet collar, cuffs and inset panel at the bodice. There is also a matching forest green sash at the waist, antique undergarments and antique brown net socks with wonderful reproduction Jumeau brown leather shoes with brown silk rosette. On her head is a jaunty green velvet beret with a luxurious curled brown ostrich feather! What a delightful presentation of a proper Victorian French child!
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!
