How very delightful! This SFBJ Bebe Jumeau Size 11 is from the earliest SFBJ period (circa 1899-1900) is a must-have for the collector who looks for excellent French Bebes of all periods- especially transitional eras! That is what I focus on in my collection of Jumeaux! Wearing a stunning faded pale blue polished cotton original antique bebe dress with full sweeps of box pleats and antique silk ribbon trim, an outstanding vintage straw chapeau bedecked with flowers bows, she's ready for any activity that a young girl might encounter in Paris of the turn of the last century. Tea time, anyone? Her original body with original finish is chunky and sturdy of wonderful quality and with the added bonus of a pull-string crier in her torso. She will present beautifully in any cabinet!

She has a perfect bisque socket head on her original fully jointed and chunky original French composition and wood body with pull-string crier. Lovely original blue fixed paperweight eyes for which the Jumeau firm was renowned, with painted upper and lower lashes, full original antique French dark blond human hair wig, multi stroke feathered and slightly molded brows, slightly smiling mouth with shading, accent lines and six upper teeth, and pierced ears. She is just a delight!
Wearing a stunning antique very pale blue polished-cotton dress with large box pleats and antique ecru lace and a lovely vintage straw chapeau with applied flowers but definitely evoking the period, antique full slip matching pantaloons, original socks and fine reproduction cream leather Jumeau shoes. Quite a fetching presentation indeed!
MARKS: SFBJ / Paris / 11
CONDITION: Excellent. The gorgeous head with fine quality bisque, pleasant color, expert painting of delicate features, crisp modeling of very attractive and sweet face with those ever desirable big blue paperweight eyes that seem to pack an ocean of depth.
