This is the size 2/0 Poupee Peau made by Jumeau around 1885. Her porcelain bisque head is perfect with no cracks or repairs, and the head swivels on the original bisque breastplate. The blue paperweight eyes and facial painting are exquisite.She wears her original auburn mohair wig. The body is kid leather, with stitched fingers. Although the arms and hands have superficial wear, there are no tears or leaks. She wears her original pantalets, chemise, and petticoat. I believe that the stockings are original, but I can't be sure. The shoes are original and have not been removed because of short laces. The original costume, being around 130 years old, was made of silk, which was badly shredded. The doll is now dressed in a walking costume of beige antique raw silk.
The trim on the bodice and skirt matches the flowers on her original hat and gorgeous red drop earrings in her pierced ears. I hope you will enjoy this lovely fashion lady as much as I have. The item "Antique Jumeau French Fashion doll 10.5 in.
