What a delightful expression this precious all antique Bebe Jumeau has! She seems so excited to meet you. Dressed in her sweet antique pink cotton frock, with bouffant blouson, two tiered ruffled skirt with lace trim and a perfect set of antique underwear. In her strawberry blond human hair wig and her gorgeous brown leather reproduction Jumeau shoes, this bebe is appointed with many of the assets that the true Jumeau collector looks for in a Jumeau Bebe! From the day she was born at the Jumeau factory in Paris, France circa 1895, she has survived and come down to us to be her custodians and preserve her for the next generation. Oh my, and I forgot to mention her wonderful antique pink bonnet with lovely applied flowers! What a real treasure she would be to have and to hold.
This charming doll must have brought hours of amusement to her Victorian family! And how lucky are we to have the pleasure of re-imagining and reliving that moment here in the 21st century?—Just about 125 years after she was produced by Jumeau!
~This sweet girl is available on layaway! Take up to 8 months to pay for her. She will await her new home in our layaway cabinet, and the months will simply fly by!~
She has a bisque socket head on a fully jointed Jumeau body. Beautiful BIG original blue paperweight/sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke feathered, thick brows, open mouth with shading and accents and six upper teeth, pierced ears and a lovely French human hair wig in strawberry blond.
Wearing a lovely antique pink cotton Bebe dress , antique undergarments, white stockings and brown leather reproduction Jumeau shoes stamped 8. The pretty antique pink bonnet with applied flowers is a nice compliment to her dress. .
CONDITION: Generally excellent. The beautiful head with pale and fine quality bisque, pleasant color, expert painting of delicate features, crisp modeling of gorgeous Jumeau classic face with a slightly smiling expression. Some typical flakes at the ear pierce holes. Her Original Jumeau body in good, sturdy condition but it has had some repairs and touch-ups where the paint has flaked off as is typical with Jumeau bodies. The pull strings that originally made her cry are still intact but the crying mechanism no longer works. What a darling Jumeau bebe! And what a fabulous antique dress and French wig! You can't go wrong with this wonderful bebe!
