This stunning antique French Closed Mouth Tete Jumeau Bebe, by Emile Jumeau circa 1885, is a treasure to behold! Her deepest chocolate, luminous inset paperweight eyes are delicately fringed with finely painted lashes and accentuated with gracefully arched multi-stroked brows. Her cherubic bisque face features peachy pink lips and soft pink cheek blush. Little original blue earrings adorn her ears.Her long, human hair chestnut brown curls and tendrils frame her face beautifully and cover her original cork pate. Her original composition and wooden fully jointed body with original body finish, has plump limbs and bears the older, highly sought after Medaille D'Or mark just above her derrière. Her original antique costume is darling! Resplendent in hues of the softest robin's egg blue, and antique lace. A sumptuous satin bow ties the very girlish bonnet that frames her face artfully with tulle, rosettes and lace. Lovely antique lacy undergarments and original marked Jumeau shoes complete the ensemble. She is the epitome of a proper little French girl during an era when French youngsters were doted upon, and rightfully so.
She is free of hairlines, cracks or restoration. A stand out doll for the discerning collector.
