Such an adorable bebe with a sweet face that looks like the earlier Bleuettes. She is in excellent antique condition, never undressed, she still has her original under garments, original blond mohair wig (possibly the socks and shoe, and the hat is a later addition). The painting on her face is still nice and bright with single stroke eyebrows and dimpled chin, set on a crude French movable 5-piece body; she has never been undressed.
Her blue glass eyes have been set and there shows manufacture flaw on her left hand. This mold has been compared to the early Bleuette and determined to likely be the same mold or very close, with just the nose being slightly different. The 1907 in this size is a desirable companion for Bleuette, but she’s really just a darling all on her own.
She has been hand wiped off with soap and water, and her body too that could be reached when she was undressed and inspected. Her wig is mohair that was sewn in the center; it too has been cleaned and displays nicely under the little straw hat. She is signed on the back of her head 1907 DEP R/A. A wonderful sweet doll in the most desirable size and hard to find with her original clothing.
