OVERVIEW: This is a very sweet Jumeau French Fashion lady with a perfect bisque head. Her kid body carries the Jumeau stamp. She is fully dressed in a lovely sheer pink print gown, full unders, antique side button boots and a fine antique straw hat. She retains her original wig. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

HEAD: She has a swivel neck on a kid-lined shoulderplate. Her bisque is perfect with no cracks, chips or hairlines. She has cobalt threaded eyes, narrow brows, and her lips are beautifully painted with accents and shading. Her ears are pierced directly into her head. She is completely unmarked, but her face is classic Jumeau. Her blond mohair wig appears to be original and she also retains her original cork pate. Factory Imperfections: some minor speckling and a dab of extra bisque on one ear (You would probably not have noticed it). Signs of Wear: a faint rub, very low on her cheek.

BODY: Her French all kid body has overall age wear. There are tiny patches on her arms, one patch below her knee and on one thigh, and a few tiny holes. The gussets themselves are all in very good shape with no repairs. She has individually stitched and wired fingers that are all present. The blue Jumeau stamp is found on her lower back.

CLOTHES: She is fully dressed. She wears a beautiful detailed gown of a sheer pink printed fabric. The gown has an attached over-skirt and a separate cross-over belt. She wears a bustle so the back of the gown has a nice full shape. Underneath, she wears an antique camisole, antique bloomers, and a half-slip of antique fabric. She has nice antique pink stockings and antique black leather side button boots. She is also wearing a fine antique straw bonnet.
