This is a lovely EJ with flawless painting. She is marked Depose E8J on the back of her head with the artist's red tickmark. She dates to the early-mid 1880's. Her bisque is nice and pale with perfect eyebrows, closed mouth with outlined lips, pierced ears and pretty blue glass paperweight eyes. She stands 18 1/2" tall and comes with her cork pate, stunning antique blonde mohair wig with lots of curls and pink earrings.
She is on a straight wristed composition and wood 8 loose ball body. The body has a little repaint which is covering up her mark on her lower back. She has antique undergarments, marked Jumeau antique brown leather shoes with ribbons and comes with a fantastic pink silk dress made from antique fabrics and lace. The bodice has thick pink braided cord, and embroidered waistband and is a work of art unto itself. There is a tear in the pink silk under the lace but it is not noticeable and I don't mind mending if desired. She has a pretty white cream bonnet with ties and flower decoration. She is ready to display and can be yours on layaway with just $500 down provided the remainder is paid in 18 monthly installments or less.
