This is an especially appealing Tete Jumeau with pale bisque and superb painting. She is fully dressed including her original Jumeau shoes, antique bonnet, antique unders, antique stockings, and a lovely lacy dress of antique fabrics. She retains her original marked Jumeau body. She is very beautiful. Because of some surface chipping at the neck socket you can own this beautiful Bebe at a great price. Layaway is always an option. Please contact me to discuss terms. Here are her details:

Head: She is a very beautiful closed mouth bebe. She has pale bisque and large blue paperweight eyes. Her painting is gorgeous with even brows and long lashes. Her lips are so artistically rendered with a white space between the lips, a darker shaded area inside the lower lip, and delicate accenting. She has her original cork pate and a waist-length blond French human hair wig. She is stamped in red Depose Tete Jumeau /Bte S.G.D.G. 11. Signs of Wear: surface chipping at the neck socket. Factory imperfections: very light speckling.

Body: Her original Jumeau body is stamped in blue: Jumeau Medaille D'or, and also carries a sticker that says France. The lower arms and hands have an old over-paint and there is touchup under the arms. The body is sturdy and sound with wear at the joints and some paint flaking.

Clothes: She is wearing a lacy dress of antique fabrics, laces, and trims. The dress has an attached slip. Underneath, she wears an antique full slip and bloomers. She has nice antique stockings and she retains her original Jumeau shoes. The soles are missing, but the shoes are still sturdy and sound for display. Finally, she wears a very nice antique bonnet with a wide lace frill.

International Buyers: My dolls are available for worldwide shipping. Insurance options vary by country of destination, so please contact me to discuss shipping and insurance options to your country.
