Antique French Bisque Head Doll Depose Tete Jumeau Sweet BEAUTY 10 1/2
This is a special little antique french bisque head doll, a 10 1/2 inch tall Tete Jumeau. She is on her original body, and it holds poses well. The arms are wood and look like the original painted surface is gone and have minor cracks. The front area of the right foot looks like it has been reglued or just cracked across, very hard to see. The head is free of damage, no cracks, no chips. The original pate is still in place. Her beautiful blue glass paperweight eyes are fixed. I see no repairs to her head, and no damage around her pierced ears.
There are two matching antique undergarments here, possibly her original ones. The powder blue dress and bonnet were made by "Mae Lee Designs" from Crestwood Kentucky. This 2 piece set is very detailed and well made.
She also comes with a newer brunette wig. This doll came from an estate in Indianapolis from a lady that loved antique dolls.
I tried to describe as best as I can, and just don't see enough examples of these type of dolls.
