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.
