History: The closed mouth Bebes were introduced first before the open mouths with the classic French bodies. Most of the Bebe Jumeau's had closed mouths until the 1890's. It wasn't until 1890-1891 that the prevalent red stamp markings were implemented on the back of the neck. In 1884 the talking pull string criers were introduced and the twin gold medal award is the stamp on the Bebe Jumeau body.
Bebe Jumeau: This is a beautiful antique Bebe Jumeau standing at almost 19". Her delicate features include; fine feathered brows, stunning deep blue enamel paperweight eyes by Guepratte, dark eyeliner, elongated painted upper and lower lashes, blushed cheeks, closed mouth with the heart shaped lips that began in 1886. She has pierced ear lobes with pink drop earrings. The bisque head has the spiral spring attachment to the body which began in 1881. She is on her original French factory finish composition body with all fingers and toes and articulated jointed wrists. Her pull string for the crier is absent and her stringing is taut.
