A very nice interpretation of the famous rare French bebe, Mary Benner designed this doll for her doll shop and had them made in a limited edition of 400. The outfit is a replica of the antique and she is very appealing with a dark blonde curly hair wig, mutli-stroke eye brows painted over blue set glass eyes, mauve eye shadow, rosy cheeks and softly painted lips. She is a bisque head should plate with lower bisque arms and hands and lower bisque legs fastened to a stuffed cloth body.
She measures 19” to 20 ½” including her hat, she is on her original tapestry covered stand with original box and paperwork. She was only displayed for short time and then put in her box and packed away so she is in like new condition. This doll was made and dated 2003 and will not be produced again.
