Adorable petite French Fashion with perfect bisque and a wonderful original wig. She is wearing a charming walking suit with matching hat, a three-piece matched set of unders, striped stockings and slip-on leather shoes. Layaway is always an option. Please contact me to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no cracks, chips or hairlines. She has bulbous blue paperweight eyes and perfect painting. She retains her original pate and her wonderful wig is likely original as well. It is typical of Jumeau of the period, with the sides pulled up into a top-knot and tiny curls surrounding her face. Her ears are pierced and her Jumeau-blue earrings are probably original. Factory imperfections: None noted. Signs of Wear: None. This is an excellent bisque head.

Body: Her original French kid lady body has mitten hands with separate thumb and straight limbs - typical for her size. Her waist has been reinforced, otherwise the condition is excellent.

Clothes: She is wearing a well-made vintage costume with antique shoes and stockings. Her fancy two-piece walking suit and matching hat is of palest violet taffeta, lined with brown polished cotton, and closing with hooks and eyes. There are some tiny splits in the taffeta, otherwise the condition is excellent. Underneath, she wears a vintage matched chemise, half-slip and bloomers – all in excellent clean condition. Finally, she wears antique striped stockings and simple slip-on antique leather shoes. These are sewn onto the body and likely original.
