Sometimes in life, you come across such a breath taking doll, you just can't resist her. This is that doll, and how I felt when I first saw her.She is a huge, tall and chunky size 34 or 87cm in height. A very large and imposing French Jumeau, bought in France. She is marked in red, on the back of her head : Tete Jumeau , 16, with artist's check marks. She has the most mesmerising liquid, sapphire blue paper weight eyes in their original set, fringed with upper and lower eyelashes. Her eyebrows are distinctive French feathered in dark brown. Her beautiful eyes have eyeliner. Her soft coral mouth is open, displaying six original white teeth. Her wonderful hand painted face has an exceptional delicate, rose blushed complexion. There are no repairs, hairlines, blemishes or restoration to the bisque head.
Her separately molded applied ears are pierced and she wears antique earrings. Her head retains the coil fixing mechanism. Her French Jumeau fully jointed body is in excellent original condition, big and chunky. There is a blue stamp on back " bebe Jumeau" diplome d'honneur, and the body retains the original patina and paint.
All fingers and toes are intact. Her stringing is correct, she can stand on her own, and hold a pose. She wears a platinum blonde mohair wig in curls, I will also include her original human hair brunette wig. She has her original cork pate. She wears antique clothing, a cotton chemise, a lovely antique lace and silk drop waist dress, with silk rosettes and tiny mother of pearl buttons and loop fasteners.
Dress is in excellent condition, a few minor stains. She wears cream crochet socks with chocolate leather shoes with loop and bead fastening.
A straw hat with summer flowers and purple ribbons completes her outfit. She will be packaged very well, I use sturdy cardboard boxes and bubble. This girl is extremely heavy, so post will be more expensive than usual. This is a totally superb special doll, she is from my private collection, put together over the last 40 years.
