Body: Jumeau Medaille D' or Paris
Shoes: Antique 9 Paris Bee symbol engraved
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 very pretty Bebe Jumeau with a child like expression in her classic modeling of bisque. She stands 19.5" with an angelic face and expert painting of details. Her features include, feathered brows, striking deep blue paperweight eyes by Guepratte, delicate painting of upper and lower lashes, blushed cheeks, closed mouth with painted and outlined lips. She wears blue and gold earrings in her pierced ear lobes which match her outstanding costume. The right ear lobe has a tiny white speck. She is on her original factory finish French ball jointed body with all fingers and toes, straight wrists. A few areas of composition absent, upper thigh and tips of fingers. She has a non-working pull string crier. She wears a beautiful antique mohair wig with attractive curls that drape over her shoulders with her original cork pate. Her bisque has been lit and she is guaranteed to be without cracks, fine lines or restorations.
Attire: She wears a custom professional couture dress with a matching bonnet made especially for her for a gorgeous presentation. Feature elements include a beautiful ecru tulle lace that wraps around the Bertha collar over Juliette sleeves. The bodice has pleating with vertical gold trim. A row of ruffles decorates below the waist with ecru embroidered tulle lace over light blue satin. Trimmed with a scallop hemline accentuates the lace. She wears a lovely "Bebe" pin. The dress has a complimentary large bow in the back. The matching bonnet is just as lovely with embroidered lace and ivory satin. Her undergarments are antique with a full petticoat and pantaloons. Her shoes are the classic antique brown leather engraved Paris bee symbol with the silver buckles. She is an appealing Bebe Jumeau in her exquisite attire.
