This is a magnificent and stunning example of an early Jumeau French fashion doll that stands 26" tall. Her bisque head is free from any hairlines, damage or restoration. She has lovely blue spiral glass eyes, creamy even bisque, closed mouth, pierced ears, and an elaborate brown mohair antique wig with lots of curls. She is marked 10 on the lower back of her head along with the artist's red tickmark. She is on her original kid leather body, which is in wonderful, sturdy condition and is nice and clean. She comes in your choice of two different antique ensembles: a two piece blue walking suit with wonderful bustle. There is some wear/fading to the outfit but it is in very good condition considering it dates to the 1880's. The jacket has all of its buttons and is nice and long - a linen type of material. The silk skirt has some melting but is still very useable. Her black straw hat is adorned with fabulous blue and black feathers with an antique silk ribbon. She is wearing a rare antique pin, probably of Empress Eugenie. It is a hand painted portrait on a celluloid wafer housed in a silver broach with tiny pearls. It opens up to show several bright red compartments and is included with this ensemble. The other costume choice is a fabulous three piece ballgown made of fine antique cream silk with a light mint green patterned silk. The gown has 3 parts - a bodice with eye and hook closure, the cream silk gown with antique lace and matching green pattern silk with wonderful silk pleats and a 3rd bustle made of fine silk. She comes with a faux pearl necklace, pearl pin, smaller shell purse. With either choice, she comes with her antique undergarments, socks and wonderful mint green antique shoes with buckles. This stunning doll dates to 1875 and can be yours on layaway with just $600 down provided the remainder is paid in 15 monthly payments or less. Don't let this magnificent beauty escape. The spiral eyes are especially valuable on this doll.
