How very delightful! This SFBJ Bebe Jumeau Size 11 is from the earliest SFBJ period (circa 1899-1900) is a must-have for the collector who looks for excellent French Bebes of all periods- especially transitional eras! That is what I focus on in my collection of Jumeaux! Wearing a stunning brown and olive silk couture frock dress with fancy double box-pleats on her skirt, long frock coat with lappets
all outlined in contrasting cream trim, cute triplet MOP buttons on each side. neat knife pleated bodice with lace overlay at the middle torso, followed by shirring and then a lace ruffle at the top of the skirt--this dress has all the bells and whistles and it is fully lined as well! Underneath she wears a wonderful set of antique undergarments, antique cream cotton knit socks and a super fine pair of replica brown leather Jumeau shoes with brown silk rosettes. Add to that her outstanding French style chapeau bedecked with feathers and a large Victorian brooch, she's ready any special occasion that a young girl might encounter in Paris of the turn of the last century. Tea time, anyone? Her wonderful French 8 ball body is chunky and sturdy of wonderful quality and with the earlier straight wrists. She will present beautifully in any cabinet!
