Up for adoption we have a c1907 Tete Jumeau Doll that is stunningly dressed in a one of a kind costume that was made just for her. She is properly marked at the back of her head with 1907 and under that the number 6 - She stands at 16.5” tall and is the perfect cabinet sized doll. She is overall in wonderful antique condition and will come dressed in this beautiful costume. She comes on her original french ball jointed, articulated composition body that is missing the sticker on the back but is guaranteed all original to the doll. She has some paint loss on her composition body hands and some repainting on her arms and a little bit to her legs, but nothing that takes away from her what -so -ever - please see her images completely nude. Her bisque head is in perfect condition without cracks to her bisque or restoration of any kind. She does have what appears to be a tiny separation at the top near the rim that was in the mold when she was first produced. She has been back lighted and the separation inspected and this not a crack within her bisque but within the mold (please see images). Her she’s missing half or the tip of her pinky finger on her left hand - again nothing that is major or takes away from this precious doll. And she has a little nick on her right ear where the earring's are placed. Please she her images and zoom in if you can on the pinky finger and the slight separation on the rim of her bisque head and the right ear where the earring has been inserted.
This wonderful doll has the most beautiful enamel spiral blue eyes that just sparkle, along with rosy-rosy cheeks, open (smiling) mouth with 4 upper teeth, heart shaped painted lips and lovely defined eyebrows and eyelashes. Her expression is that of a wide eyed young child that just melts your heart. I have had this precious little doll for several months and hate to sell her but have had fun finding her just the right costume, jewelry, purse and little dog. All that will come with her when she goes to her forever home. Her stringing is tight and she can stand and hold poses on her own. Her wig is a antique blonde wig that I am not sure is her original but it matches her eyebrow color just perfectly. She has a vintage replaced cork wig plate. She has newer undies and chemise made of cotton that have a pink satin ribbons. Her outfit consists of 3 pieces, The top/jacket, skirt and bonnet all made of silk and lace. The top is made of a almost golden color silk fabric with light turquoise and pink ribbons on the sleeves and lace detailing throughout the top and skirt. The bonnet is also made of a golden silk material and has tiny rosettes on the top and sides of the bonnet - just overall a wonderful bonnet. The bonnet was purchased from another Ruby Lane seller and looks to be antique and custom made and fits this little bebe just perfectly. She has vintage light pink socks and cream colored leather replacement shoes (that are not antique but are considered vintage) with a side button closure. Her lovely turquoise earrings are made of glass and are reproduction Jumeau earrings that were ordered from England. Her bar pin is an original Jumeau doll pin that is enamel plated with gold and turquoise colors. Her entire costume down to her earrings makes this doll a one of a kind bebe Jumeau that you will cherish for years to come. If you have been looking for a doll that you can have pride of ownership on - she’s the doll! Please examine her images as they too are a part of her description. Ask any questions that you might have about her or if you would like additional pictures please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for stopping by!
