The French UNIS 301 is a delight to behold, with this particular girl standing at an impressive 27” tall, (reaching 39” with her wig and hat), with a bright and beautiful bisque socket head, gorgeous, watery blue sleep eyes, and adoring expression. She’s on a fully-jointed original antique French body, and is adorned in a beautiful bright cotton print antique pinafore with rickrack red trim, antique blouse, antique cotton undergarments including lace edged pantaloons and a chemise. On her feet are antique cream cotton knit socks with a pattern and antique red leather lace-up boots. She also wears a charming red straw vintage hat with flowers; a wonderful, playful costume that just begs for your attention!
She would make quite the display girl, a gorgeous French Bebe bound to add color and class to your collection. These big French girls never last long on sale, so snatch her up while you can!
