The French aspect really comes through with this joyfully smiling child , who has that extra dimension of "peculiar" that only the French could add. It is an idealization of the normal, almost a theatrical persona, and it is brilliant. This darling example is 8” tall, has blue glass sleep eyes, a closed, grinning mouth in which the molded teeth can be seen hiding between the lips, but having been intentionally painted the lip color by the factory, for a more watermelon smile. The body is a stout, five-piece toddler style with molded and painted short boots of cinnamon brown. The hands show some wear, but the condition overall is excellent. The auburn mohair wig is antique if not original. The Brittany regional outfit and muslin undergarments she wears are fresh, from the SFBJ factory production line, with only the complementary bonnet with ribbon trim being an antique addition. The garments have never been removed and are stitched into permanent position.
