Her bisque head is EXQUISITE, with beautiful PRESSED BISQUE and a LUMINESCENT QUALITY, an attribute that the Jumeau firm is renowned for, and with the exception of a rim chip that most likely happened in the firing process when the porcelain was separated from the mold, there are no noted hairlines, chips, repairs or restorations! Her head is incised on the back with "DEPOSE, E 13 J" with the original artists red check marks, and the inside has the original metal COIL SPRING!She has her original composition Jumeau body with STRAIGHT WRISTS with its ORIGINAL PATINA and no noted repaints, and is stamped on the back of her derrierre in blue ink "JUMEAU, MEDAILLE D'OR, PARIS"!
