If you are looking for an outstanding big French Bebe in a wonderful couture silk costume, this beauty is truly unforgettable. We love her big bulbous watery blue paperweight eyes, her cheery rosy cheeks and her rare smiling character expression! I do confess that I have never seen this expression before in the 30 years that I have been dealing and collecting antique dolls! Not to mention her stunning and practically flawless original fully jointed body, she is simply incredible! One of a kind, this big French girl will please even the toughest customer and soften even the hardest heart.
She has a French pressed bisque socket head on a fully jointed French composition body. Gorgeous large blue paperweight eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke stacked brows, open, smiling mouth with shading and accents, pierced ears with antique bead earrings, lovely light auburn long synthetic hair wig over the original cork pate.
