Darling 14.5” Bebe Jumeau in Sweet Pink Pinafore
Take a look at this fabulous cabinet sized Jumeau in her sweet pink pinafore and white blouse. This is a fabulous girl with her darling, classic Jumeau face. How can you possibly say no to her? Her rich brown paperweight eyes full of wonder, her rosy cheeks and her open mouth are representative of the classic Jumeau Bebe of the late 1800s . If you are fond of gorgeous French bebes, large or small, don't hesitate to make this sweetheart yours! I know that this darling little girl will be sold in a flash, so grab her up before she is GONE for good and you are left out in the cold dreaming of the one that got away.
We are offering her with the opportunity to put her on layaway for up to 6 months!
She has a wonderful poured bisque socket head with brown paperweight eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and pierced ears. She stands at 14.5” on her original fully jointed wood and composition body, and she is crowned with a soft blond mohair wig.
Her schoolgirl antique outfit is simply delightful consisting of a sweet coral pink/pinafore, with three stripes of white cord just above the hem of the skirt, picot edging along the collar and sleeves, and a pink bow on the bodice with a round coral-colored bead with goldtone caps and a faux pearl bead dangling down. Underneath, she wears a white cotton blouse with tucks and a lace-trimmed placket with four white buttons down the front, and lace trim at the collar and sleeves, with a white cotton half slip and a pair of white cotton pantaloons with eyelet lace hems. On her feet are a pair of white crochet socks and modern reproduction Jumeau shoes of brown leather with brown rosettes. On her head is a white silk bow.
MARKS: 4 [incised, back of head]
4 [imprinted on back of torso near neck]
CONDITION: Excellent. Her bisque head is entirely free of hairlines, cracks, chips or restoration! She has the finest "Jumeau" quality bisque head with smooth surface, expert painting of features, crisp modeling of sweet face with an alert, wondrous look, pleasant color and her original brown paperweight eyes. The original body was professionally repainted, and has some surface flaking of the paint, and the name “Olga” is written in ink on her back. Her costume is in great condition, with only the most minor age-related wear. Don’t let her innocent face become just a memory!!!
