This is a very beautiful Tete Jumeau, size 12. Her original body is marked. She is wearing an antique dress, antique bloomers, and nice antique French boots and stockings, as well as two slips and a charming bonnet. She has the tiniest pinpoint fleck on the lower eye rim (not seen except on closest inspection),otherwise her bisque head is outstanding. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque is very beautiful and glowing. She has a closed mouth and Jumeau’s blue human-like eyes. Her face painting is excellent. She retains her original cork pate and neck coil, and carries the typical Jumeau stamp on the back of her head. She is wearing a long blond human hair wig, which is pulled back on the sides and has short curly bangs. Examination: She has the teeniest fleck on her left lower eye rim(her left, your right - very hard to see, even in the close-up). There is really nothing else to report about this head – very fine.

Body: Her original Jumeau body has the Tete Jumeau/Diplome Honeur blue stamp on the rear. There is some paint flaking, and her right foot has a crack around it. It could be repaired, although a blacklight does not reveal any glue residue or repaint. The body finish is entirely original.

Clothes: She is fully dressed and much of her costume is antique. She wears an antique drop-waist dress with lace trim. Underneath, she wears two half-slips and matching camisole made of old eyelet embroidery. She has nice antique pantaloons and antique stocking. Her nice French white leather boots are also antique – with the well-known impressed Alart symbol of the standing woman. Finally, she wears a sweet bonnet of netting and ribbon. Everything fits perfectly and everything is in excellent condition. Domestic shipping will be by Express Mail. International Shipping: Shipping cost varies by country. Please contact me for a quote.
