This beautiful SFBJ Jumeau girl is an outstanding potential addition to any collection; she has big, bright blue sleep eyes, with a stunning creamy bisque head with alluring childlike features. She stands at an impressive 31” tall, on her original French antique fully-jointed body (which has held up wonderfully over the years). She’s adorned in a lovely costume, with a blue velvet and lace-trimmed bonnet and dress, with antique underthings. She’s topped by a fluffy dark blond wig, and would truly make a fine addition to any collection.

She has a bisque socket head, with molded and painted features: original blue glass sleep eyes, painted lower lashes, feathered flyaway brown brows, and an open mouth with five square-cut upper teeth, with a lightly dimpled chin and pierced ears, decorated with earrings. She is on her original antique wood and composition fully-jointed French body, standing at 31” tall. She wears a synthetic dark blond wig.
Atop her head goes a white faux silk bonnet, with abundant ruffles, and lace trim, with a blue velvet band and decorative flowers. She wears a matching blue velvet and white lace gown, truly suited for display. Underneath goes a white cotton antique full slip and pantaloons, both with abundance lace. The slip has a buttonhole fastening upon each shoulder for easy dressing-down. She wears white cotton socks, and faux leather white Mary-Jane style shoes.
MARKS: 24 FRANCE SFBJ PARIS [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The glass eyes sleep well, and are aligned straight in the head. There is some minor flaking wear to the wax eyelids. The body is good, with only minor and typical wear; in fact, the body is one of the finer examples of French wood/composition bodies, as the French-made bodies were often more delicate and took more damage over the years. This girl’s body has held up very well, with sturdy stringing, and minimal to no touchup and repaints. There is some wear to the composition on the left thigh. The wig is soft and supple, and has no smokey odors. The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear.
