This is a beautiful, antique bisque and kid leather French fashion poupee by Jumeau, circa late 1800s. She has a swivel head, and stationery, bulbous blue paperweight eyes fringed with delicately painted upper and lower lashes. Her feathered brows and accented nostrils further define her lovely face. Her fine quality bisque is accentuated with rosy cheeks and Cupid's bow lips.
Her original blonde mohair hair wig is of the finest quality. She wears lovely blue glass earrings in her pierced ears. Her darling frock is handmade of the finest French batiste and trimmed with Valenciennes lace. There is some fading to the skirt, and a small repair to the upper back bodice, as to be expected given its age.
Underneath her two piece walking gown she dons two lace trimmed slips and pantaloons that are so sweet! She has brown delicately knitted stockings and black original shoes with ornamented bows. I have not undressed her as her outfit is sewn on, however, her kid body seems in incredible condition underneath.There are no hairlines or repairs to her bisque. She has all of her fingers and hands have slight wear as to be expected, but great for her age! She's 13.5 tall.
