French Jumeau DEP Doll, Gorgeous Costume, Jumeau Shoes, HH Wig This offering is for a stunning 18” Bebe Jumeau that wears all of her original clothes, including her rare original rose satin signed Jumeau shoes. HEAD: Her bisque head has no issues—no chips, cracks, hairlines, pepper marks, rubs, other factory flaws or restoration. The back of her head is marked “DEP” and “7”. She has bright blue clear paperweight set eyes, crisp modeling, and expert painting of all her facial details. Her cheeks are naturally blushed with no rubs. Her lip color and shape of her closed mouth are exceptionally pretty. She wears a beautiful excellent condition human hair wig with long curls which may be original. Her ball jointed body is in exceptional condition considering its age. It has no cracks, splits or breaks but there is minor scuffing to a finger on one hand. BODY: The body which appears so perfect may have been repainted some time in the past, but I don’t see any obvious signs and the finish appears original. COSTUME: The original costume consists of a pink cotton dress with a dropped waist and a separate collar with red decoration. There are a few tiny holes present in a fold on the back of the dress that aren’t seen due to the fold. She wears a one piece original undergarment in very good condition. The beautiful very old floral garland headpiece has had a purple ribbon added to tie under the chin if desired. It is the perfect accessory to complete her fashionable look. We can’t forget her original stockings and Bee marked Jumeau pink satin shoes that are in very good condition. They are extraordinarily rare since Jumeau fabric shoes hardly ever stand the test of time. They both have their original bows. One is missing the tiny round bead closure. I have deliberately not removed the shoes and stockings for photos of the doll’s body. I wouldn’t take a chance of causing damage to the precious shoes by removing them. All garments are in very fine antique condition with no rips, tears, stains, odors or repairs. This doll comes from a non-smoking home. PROVENANCE: This doll joined my collection by way of a winning bid at a Theriault Auction. The “ONLY CHILD” Theriault auction consisted of the amazing lifelong collection of Berta Leon Hackney. The perfect Theriault auction tag is still present and will be furnished along with the doll. Shipping by USPS Fully Insured Standard Mail is all inclusive with your purchase.
