This is a rare exceptionally fine French doll that's marked on the back: E. Stands for Emile Douillet (ca 1890). This is a beautifully made hard to find Jumeau doll. She has feathered eyebrows, original re-set threaded paperweight eyes with fine lashes painted all around and a shaded closed mouth. She has pierced ears with replaced "pearl" earrings.
Her smooth complexion is beautiful and looks flawless. There is, however, a professional invisible repair on the right side of the forehead. There is a double tight hairline that has been reenforced on the inside of the head. The repair is strong, does not show on the surface, will.
Not change and doesn't affect her beauty. Her body is in great condition and is mostly original paint. I think the hands may have been repainted. The body is well strung and holds a position. There is a mute speaker with two pull strings on the left side, they no longer do anything.
She wears a spectacular French couturier antique dress. It's from my collection and has been altered a bit to fit this doll, it looks perfect on her. The matching tam was created to compliment the dress. Her slim underwear was made to accommodate the dress.
She wears side button vintage leather boots. Her head is stuffed with tissue paper and the replaced pate is lightly attached. Her original mohair wig is simply pinned to the pate. The doll stand is not included. The item "Antique 20French Jumeau closed mouth Emile Douillet doll, original body" is in sale since Monday, October 26, 2020.
