She has a bisque socket head with brown glass sleep eyes, painted lower lashes, real upper lashes, thin molded and feathered brown brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and pierced ears. She stands at 22.5” tall on her original fully-jointed wood and composition body with the original Bebe Jumeau paper label, and wears a sweet brown synthetic wig styled in curls with bangs.
She is dressed in a sweet light blue dress, with a wonderful watered moire effect, lace trim at the collar and sleeves, a pleated periwinkle hem. Above the hem is a scalloped detail, lace overlay, a stripe of maroon ribbon, and several maroon rhinestones. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip with tucks and lace trim, and a pair of vintage white cotton pantaloons with lace trim and pink insertion ribbon. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and modern-made brown leather shoes. On her head is a darling light blue bonnet, with pleated blue satin and white lace trim around the front and back of the brim, lace overlay and a white silk flower across the top, and white ties.

MARKS: 21 / FRANCE / BFBJ / 301 / PARIS [incised, back of head]
BEBE JUMEAU / Diplome d’Honneur [paper label, back of torso]

CONDITION: Excellent! The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with the most particular attention paid to her painting and modeled-features; there are some rubs. The glass eyes sleep well, with good alignment; the lashes are sparse. The hands have been touched up and revarnished, and the body has some age-related wear, mostly to the joints. Otherwise, the wood and composition body retains much of its original shiny finish, and has its original Bebe Jumeau paper label. The costume has a large stain and worn trim on the back; this is not visible from the front and does not detract from her presentation. Overall, this is a beautiful doll!
