Offered on behalf of the Wood collection is this very fine 23" example of the harder to find SFBJ 230 Jumeau character doll.
Her bisque socket head is perfect with out damage or restoration and is incised: "S.F.B.J. / 230 / Paris/11 ." There is a small firing split on crown not uncommon for these later dolls and it is int he firing not damage. Her face features a very even hued fair complexion with blue sleep eyes that have painted upper and lower lashes as well as real lashes. Her slightly parted shaded lips reveal 6 upper molded teeth and her replaced French human hair wig is perfect for her complexion and coloring.
She is on her original fully jointed composition and wood SFBJ Jumeau body which has painted lower legs and upper arms. The lower leg painting is chipping and reveals an original finish beneath it. All fingers are present.
She wears antique pantaloons, a pink fuchsia cotton jacket dress and brown cotton socks. All she needs is a decent pair of shoes!
A softly expressive character doll.
