Here is a beautiful 24 antique closed mouth bebe of uncertain origin. She is either an unmarked French doll or a Sonneberg - Kuhnlenz type German doll for the French market. Her head is a lovely peach, delicately painted with lip outline in the French manner with a Bru type space between her lips. She has gorgeous fixed dark blue paperweight eyes in their original set.
Her wig is still attached to her head and is human hair braided in a country child's updo. She has pierced ears but with no earrings. The only marks on her head are incised numbers 736 and 10. She is on a marked chunky fixed wrist early Jumeau body (EJ type) with the blue stamp as well as the remnants of the original department store label.
She wears antique underwear and a pink silk dress that is a little faded. She has old white socks and shoes though the shoes are splitting a bit at the soles. This is a lovely and unusual bebe to add to your collection. She kind of resembles a German child but has a long face Jumeau or Bru jeune look. I have never seen one like this before.
