French, mystery maker, circa 1888, this rare model has original body and body finish.What a luscious French Bebe! If you would like to add something different to your doll collection, here she is! A doll collection is always so interesting when there is a variety to enjoy. This 17" closed mouth beauty has pale bisque with delicate blushing, multi-stroked eyebrows and eyelashes and the most wonderful full lips. Her deep blue paperweight eyes are surrounded by very desirable dark liner. As with some early dolls, she has uneven eye cuts. Bebe is on a fully jointed body that, apart from some rubbing here and there, is in very nice condition. Her head is marked M 6 and her body is marked 6 between the shoulder blades. Her costume is made in the antique style. Underneath the lace over dress is a peachy pink silk under dress. She has antique split bloomers and an antique slip. On her feet are antique pink stockings and antique high top leather boots. Her blonde human hair wig is long and full and she has her original cork pate. Her straw hat is the icing on the cake! Bebe's bisque is without damage or repair, however she must have been handled at the factory after the tinting stage. Some of the tinting has rubbed away on her neck, pictured. Again, this is factory. She's well strung, beautifully dressed and ready to join your fine collection! Layaway available.
