Very, very Special !! Jumeau Fashion 13" All original Bride Costume AND in original box, circa 1870. What could be more desirable for a Fashion or Jumeau collector than this June Bride. Condition - is wonderful with no hairlines, repairs or other damage. The earring holes are perfect-99.9% certain earrings have never been in the head. Eyes are in original setting. Original cork pate and mohair wig. Bisque swivel neck 13" Fashion has been inspected fully with multiple light sources and jewelers loop. Dressing is great - very clean, no melting. Ivory silk dress with elaborate trim and stitching and lovely net veil with tiny wax flower crown. Her pretty mohair wig is full in a nice tucked, loose bun with braids and tiny curls accenting her face. Underneath(see photos) is a matching white cotton antique slip and pantaloons, long socks and perfect little white leather slippers - marked L H in a circle. Her slip is tied at her waist but is either a full slip or a half with a pleated bustier. (I have never fully undressed this doll so please do not ask me to risk damage to the outfit to undress the doll.) The box has mo maker marks but it very sturdy with pretty paper cut trim and holder for her bouquet in the lid(original). The lid of the box is prettily detailed with a bridal corsage on the cover. Marks/Doll- incised 3 on neck bulb with two red tic marks above the 3. See photo of doll from behind with inner bisque visible. Bisque inside the head is immaculate-pure white. I have never owned as original a Jumeau doll. Shipping on this doll will be actual cost to ship with insurance. I would prefer to ship Priority Express in the US to limit time in shipping. Post Note - area underneath chin is dirty now perfectly clean - so sorry. Bisque is perfect in area no darkening. Photo number 2 has a nice clean face.
