This is such a pretty doll! She is a Tete Jumeau with her original Jumeau lady body. Jumeau made two versions of his lady body and this is the earlier version. She is fully dressed, wearing a lovely bridal costume with a long veil of gorgeous antique lace. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me to discuss terms before purchase. Here are the details:

Head: She has brown paperweight eyes and a closed mouth with a wide white space between her shaded lips. She is very neatly painted. She is marked with the typical Tete red stamp, size 7 and artist checkmarks. She wears a very pretty ash blond mohair wig that is pulled back on the sides. Signs of Wear: She has nicks at each earring hole and at the neck edge – very minor. There is a hint of a rub in one brow that was not seen until lit by the camera flash. Factory Imperfections: None noted – a beautiful bisque head.

Body: Her original Jumeau lady body is in very good condition. She has a tiny waist and is very shapely. Jumeau made two versions of a lady body, and this is the earlier style body. There is wear to the composition on one wrist, otherwise there is nothing to report – no repairs and the finish is entirely original. It is marked with a Jumeau sticker.

Clothes: She is wearing a golden satin and lace bridal gown and long lace veil. The gown is two-piece with lace-trimmed satin bodice and antique lace overlay on the full skirt. Her veil is very long and made of gorgeous antique lace with fine edging. Underneath, she wears a full length slip and matching bloomers, made of antique fabrics and laces. She has thigh-length lace stockings and gold satin shoes. Everything fits well and is in very good condition.
