This is a very interesting and beautiful "pieced together" doll from a local family. The doll has been in the family for 3 generations and no one knows how/why the Jumeau head ended up on a Bru body.
They had it appraised in the 1980's and again in 2010 for more than they are asking. (I will provide a copy of the appraisals) The head is marked 11 and measures about 5 tall. It has a 13 circumference.
It has no chips, hairlines or repairs, although there is a mold flaw/line that extends across the right ear, and a tiny cut firing line on the left eye inner corner. It is attached to the body with the original spring attachment.
The body is sturdy with some patches at the knees and new' leather covering the arms. The leg are stuck in a seated position and the arms are outstretched. Part of the original paper label remains as shown. The hands do not have any damage.
The shoulder plate has one pock mark/mold flaw on the left front side. The body measures about 19-20 tall. The shoulder plate measures 5 1/2" wide with about a 2" neck opening. She has her original cork pate and human hair wig that has been cut.There are some random clothing pieces, but nothing old or original. I have this doll on consignment and at first was going to take the head off the body and sell separate from each other, but did not want to mess with removing the spring.
Please feel free to call me with any questions that you might have. If you have an early Jumeau body, you can put together a nice doll. They open to reasonable offers.
