This is a beautiful little original antique 12 Figure A Steiner Bebe made by Jules Steiner in approximately 1890 in Paris. She is marked appropriately on the back of her head "La Parisien Bte SGDG A5", as well as stamped on her original body. Her bisque has no cracks, hairlines, or repairs. She does have a surface scratch on one eye.
Her body has some repaint on the front and back of the chest and at the leg/torso joint. The body shows age related wear and scuffs. The bisque has a few small scuffs and tiny discolorations that do not detract from her beauty. This tiny Bebe has lovely dark feathered brows, blue set eyes, and exquisite facial painting.
Her ears are pierced and there is no flaking at the holes. She wears a quality vintage replacement mohair wig that suits her perfectly, and her original pate. This darling has been redressed in a dress made of antique Ivory colored silk with pink ribbon trim.It is well made and fits her very nicely. She wears vintage pantalettes and an antique drawstring slip. She has socks and her original shoes (one shoe has a replaced tie). She also wears an ecru colored silk, lace, and ribbon bonnet. This Steiner Bebe will stand freely and is ready to display.
She has been lamp tested and I will be happy to send any additional photos or answer any questions!
