17 French Fashion Smiling Jumeau Doll dressed in her cotton print day dress. It is beautifully tailored with green trim down the front, belt, sleeves, bottom hem, and the wonderful pockets for her to keep her sewing supplies. The green glass floral buttons are beautiful down the front opening of her dress. Her bisque is pale and smooth with finely feathered brows, with blue almond paperweight eyes and slightly smiling mouth. She has no chips or cracks to her swivel head or pierced ears.
Her bisque shoulder plate has a 1/2 factory split at back bottom edge, see photos. Her ears are pierced with green glass earrings with pearl drops.
She has her original cork pate with blond mohair wig which is sparse, still nice. Her body is a French antique cloth with leather arms that show wear to the stitched fingers. The cotton body is made to be seated, as shown in some photos. Her cloth body is flexible and lighter weight than the leather bodies usually seen on these dolls, came to me like this, not sure if it is original to her.
She has her antique cotton and lace slip and pantaloons, looks like her original stockings, one has a hole, and antique pink silk slippers that look handmade. She carries silk ribbon and sterling scissors, marked, that opens and has a tiny spool of thread and needle for sewing. Her bonnet is straw with green silk ribbon and antique wax flowers & buds. She has a wonderful presence, ready to display! The item "Antique 17 Jumeau Smiling French Fashion Lady Doll Original Dress" is in sale since Monday, October 21, 2019.
