Guest Book
This is a lovely French Fashion, circa early 1870’s. She is unmarked, but all signs clearly point to Jumeau manufacture. She has a swivel neck and a perfect bisque head and shoulderplate. Her Jumeau body is in outstanding condition. She is fully dressed including her two-piece dress, slip, bloomers, shoes, stockings and fancy straw hat. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me before purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no cracks, chips or hairlines. She has a swivel neck and her head is attached with the Jumeau-style domed-shaped wooden neck button. She has almond-shaped threaded cobalt enamel eyes, narrow brows and accented lips. She has pierced ears and the remains of her earrings, so you can easily attach new ones. She wears a long blond mohair wig decorated with pale green ribbon bows. Factory Imperfections: She has an occasional speckle and a little red mark on the back of her head. Signs of Wear: None noted.

Body: Her original Jumeau body is in remarkable condition – clean, white, strong and straight. There is a drop of glue on one index finger. This was Jumeau’s deluxe leather body with the double-piped V-shaped stitching at the waist.

Clothes: She is fully dressed in a two-piece green silk costume with slight train. Underneath she wears a very full half-slip and bloomers. Her slip appears to be antique and her bloomers are either antique or well-made of antique materials. These each close with a single button and fit her perfectly. The bloomers have some brown marks from being displayed in a metal stand for a very long period. She has thigh-length silk stockings and simple antique leather slip-on shoes. She also wears a very nice fancy straw hat with green ribbon trim.
