This doll is absolutely adorable in person! She has a perfect bisque head and her original Jumeau body has no repairs or repaint. She is fully dressed, including her darling antique dress, antique bonnet, and antique boots. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no damage or repairs. She has threaded amber paperweight eyes. Her closed mouth is especially well painted, with rich color, accenting, shading and a white space between her lips - beautiful! She wears a long blond mohair wig and she also retains her original Jumeau wig and original cork pate. She is marked EJ Depose 5, as well as artist marks. Factory Imperfections: On her forehead, there is a raised speckle and a slight ripple in the bisque - this can be seen on close examination but is not visible in my enlarged closeup photos. Signs of Wear: a pin-point wig pull at the rim. Body: Her original Jumeau composition body retains all the original finish, with no repairs or repaint and just normal age-related wear. It is marked with the usual blue Jumeau stamp on her lower back.

Clothes: She wears a darling antique dress. It is blue cotton with a blousoned bodice, dropped waist, lace overlay and ribbon bows. Underneath, she wears a full slip and bloomers that appear to be made for her. She has antique silk ankle socks (worn) and Keystone brown leather side-button boots (replaced buttons). Finally, she wears an antique lace bonnet with rows of gathered lace framing her face and a big ribbon bow on one side.
