It is not possible so often to find very small French Bebe clothes from 1885 era , all original antique and in good condition to age. This cute tiny ensemble is all complete hand sewn of Jumeau red soft cashmere woolen and silk sateen , with tiny ruffled front part , short arms with fine lace decoration and tiny silk bows at both shoulders.
Box pleated skirt and pretty silk sateen sash around the waistline which end at back with large silk bow. Is all complete lined inside with gauze and closeup at back with tiny hooks .
The dress would fit well for on tiny doll about around 7" / 8" ( until 20 cm )
A very nice small wire bonnet belongs also to the dress , from same silk sateen as parts of the dress and a tiny rack of wire inside fold it always in perfect form. The bonnet has two silk ribbons to hold it under the dolly chin !!
