This Jumeau French Fashion doll is the one to take home if you are looking for a poupee of fine quality in her original historical silk ensemble. The painting of her facial features and the cut of her almond eyes is on par with the Portrait Jumeau poupees I have handled, and her incredible black silk costume flatter her figure and give that va-va-voom volume we love in fashion doll ensembles... I'd visit her seamstress, any day! With rare features like her original fashion chapeau, pale creamy bisque, beautiful dark lined eye-cuts contrasted against her light gray/blue glass eyes with almond cut shapes, and her nice set of original undies, how can you go wrong with this precious lady?

She has a creamy, pale bisque socket head on her original bisque shoulder-plate and kid body. Large almond-cut glass paperweight eyes with beautiful blue-grey gradient tones, delicate upper and lower lashes with lined lids. Fine light brown multistroke brows, pert nose, plump cheeks, and softly accented lips! Nicely molded ears, and expert powdery finish to bisque. Her original body is in very nice, stable condition, with only a bit of expert patching to the arms and legs (see photos). She just looks delightful even when nude!
She is wearing a spectacular antique costume comprised of a gorgeous antique cafe-au-lait silk skirt and jacket with black silk edge trim, antique glass buttons down the front, ruffled rear bustle and hem. She has beautiful original black net open finger gloves, and a very delightful original black and taupe silk chapeau with flowers, original antique cream cotton undergarments, black stockings and brown leather high heeled boots (expert modern reproductions)! She is simply divine, with the most lovely Jumeau expression and crafts-personship! What an ensemble she boasts, this little Parisienne lady!.
Condition: Superb. She is truly what we think of when we envision a museum quality French Poupee. Her bisque is guaranteed to be free of any hairlines, cracks, chips or restoration. Her original gusseted kid body is sturdy with just some typical and minor expertly executed pates. The costume does show age wear but it is still quite presentable considering her age. This heirloom doll will grace any collection of fine French poupees!LBK-April 28-2019
