She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features, with blue glass paperweight eyes, painted lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with six upper teeth. She has pierced ears, decorated with earrings. She stands at 27” tall, on her antique fully-jointed wood and composition body, and wears a long brown synthetic wig, with bangs and curls.
She wears a modern-made silk two-piece frock dress, in brown paisley brocade and pink silk, consisting of a jacket and skirt. The jacket is brown brocade, trimmed in pink, with a gathered pink center panel, gathered pink cuffs, lappets at the sides, and a brown squared collar. The cuffs, collar, and center panel hem are trimmed with white lace, with lace overlaid at the collar and waist of the panel, and the jacket is lined with cream silk. The skirt is box-pleated, brown on top and pink underneath, with a brown, lace-trimmed ruffle with pink lappets at the back, and a pink waistband. Underneath goes a cream-colored lace full slip, and white cotton pantaloons with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of black knit socks and black faux leather shoes with black velvet ties. On her head is a fabulous pale pink silk hat, overlaid with delicately embroidered net, in a silver floral motif, with a pink silk ribbon tied in a big bow, pink and cream silk flowers, and pink and cream braid; in her ears are a pair of earrings with grey faux pearls and goldtone faceted glass beads.
MARKS: SFBJ / PARIS / 12 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque head has three hairlines (pictured) that do not affect her face at all . Otherwise she has fine quality bisque, expert fine decoration of features and very crisp modeling of attractive later Jumeau face. The paperweight eyes are aligned well in the head. The hands have been repainted, and the rest of the wood and composition body has minor and expected age wear. The costume is in excellent condition, and fits her well. Overall, she has a wonderful presentation!
