If I were a collector aiming to purchase one French Bebe this spring, I would skip the waiting game and simply purchase this darling Tete Jumeau Bebe. After the Jumeau Firm won their lawsuit against Danel, who were found guilty of copyright infringement in 1895 for trying to copy the famous Jumeau bebe and naming their version "The Paris Bebe," Jumeau was awarded all of the stock which the Danel firm had produced. Not only did Jumeau make their own Paris Bebe, but they also confiscated all of the bodies and parts of the Danel dolls.
Making use of all of their resources, Jumeau utitlized the Paris Bebe bodies on their own Paris bebe as well as there contemporary Tete Jumeau Bebes--Thus, the Jumeau head on the Danel body. She is the classic Tete head on the Paris Bebe Body with the signature Eiffel tower mark on the rear torso. We have had so much pre-sale interest in this girl, I know that she will be gone very, very soon!
