What a very unusual French Fashion. This is a face you very rarely find. She's a petite 11" Jumeau Fashion with huge wrap-around eyes. Early fashions of this type were the forerunner of the Premier Jumeau Bebe! This glorious Poupee bride is really something. She is wearing an elaborate wedding dress that is not original, but possibly period. Perhaps it was made from a Victorian woman's actual wedding gown in the style of her dress. Notice Poupee's wax flower headdress and wax flower bouquet!
Her clothing is sewn on but her body is sturdy without leaking. Her glorious head is made of beautiful pale bisque with delicately painted multi-stroked eyelashes and eyebrows. Her dainty mouth is smiling slightly, it's her big day! Her mohair wig is decorated with the same beads featured on the bodice of her gown. Her bisque head and shoulders are without damage or repair. She does have quite a bit of wear to her fingers (pictured), the tip of her thumb is missing and it looks like her hands were washed (?). Her antique veil has some shredding.
What a treat she'll be in your collection! Layaway available.
