A simply stunning early Bru poupee in all original condition. Possibly dressed by Apolyne Bru as she made the very first costumes and because she was not a couturier her costumes were often stitched and nailed onto the bodies just as this doll is. The doll even has two nails in her hair which would have held a hair decoration but now only the remnant of a silk flower remains. You can see the remains of more of these flowers nailed onto the dress also. She is dressed ready for the opera in her beautiful evening gown and has her opera glasses and watch on a chain. Her original shoes are lovely but are missing their soles, her stockings are also nailed on. Her bisque is perfect and marked A on the back of her head, Bru Jne on one shoulder and depose on the other. The green silk of her dress has almost disappeared and some extra lace has been added to preserve what is left other than this she is in totally original condition........... Please ask any questions you may have or ask for more photos.
