Due to a failed layaway, this great doll is now available. This 22" Tete Jumeau Bebe has beautiful perfect bisque. Her original body is marked with the Jumeau stamp. She is fully dressed in ALL antique clothing including her adorable two-piece sailor outfit, a matched underwear set, stockings, French leather shoes, and fine lacy hat. Layaway is always an option. Please contact me to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. She has large blue paperweight eyes. Her painting is beautifully rendered with lush lashes and delicately shaded lips. She wears a pretty mohair wig with bangs and a center medallion. She is marked with the red Tete stamp and her size number – 10. Examination: a teeny flake at each earring hole and nothing else to report. This is a great bisque head.

Body: Her original body is faintly marked with the blue Jumeau stamp. There is normal wear at the joints. A blacklight reveals that her hands are repainted, but this is not noticeable under normal light. The remainder of the finish is all original.

Clothes: She is fully dressed in all antique clothing. Her adorable sailor costume is two-piece - a sleeveless dress with matching jacket. Underneath, she wears a full-length slip and bloomers. They close with drawstrings and are a matched set. She has black knit stockings and antique black leather French shoes, marked Depose. Everything fits perfectly. She also wears a really nice antique lacy hat with wired brim. She is a picture of Victorian beauty.

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.
