Offered is a Perfect Cabinet-sized 15" STUNNING Bru Brevete with EXQUISITE early painting and perfectly coutured in a silk dress typical of the ones worn by factory Bru Bebes. You have your choice of two looks: the beautiful antique long mohair wig which makes her look like a slightly older child or the curly skin wig you see in the full length photo which gives her a more toddler like appearance. Either one is perfectly suited and beautiful.
At only 15" tall, her pressed bisque socket head is in perfect condition without damage or restoration or hairlines. Her pale bisque is luminescent, her facial decoration superb with mauve shadowed eyes outlined in heavy dark liner, shaded lips, and blue paperweight eyes that all combine to make a striking look. Her shoulder plate and head are both incised with the number "3." Her face modeling has a transitional look to me much closer to that of an older toddler rather than the very young baby/toddler look of most Brevetes. The only thing to note is one earring hole goes through all the way ~ in the making. She retains her original eye set and neck attachment.
Her chunky antique Bru kid leather body has some patches at the gusset joints and someone has added a scalloped edge to the collarette. It has beautiful Bru lower bisque hands with the left thumb repaired (quite common to these early dolls), and chunky legs with stitched toes. The left lower leg has some red color peppering most likely from having worn a red sock early on. Otherwise, the body is nice and sturdy and has no sawdust leakage.
She wears a magnificent couture silk dress made entirely of antique fabrics, antique lace and tiny brass buttons and a matching silk bonnet.
There are Brus and then there are Brus. This one is truly exceptional!
