What a stunning face! Inspired by the French Bebes, this gorgeous girl is a blue ribbon example of the best of the best early German dolls which were specifically produced to emulate the popular French Jumeau bebes of the day. Those luscious, slightly smiling lips and icy blue eyes are utterly perfect~ and are perfectly accented by her strawberry blond human hair wig. She’s all dressed up in a wonderful slate grey French-style set, with a darling straw and tulle fascinator. She is such a delight to look at! This Belton-type, from expression to presentation, is simply delicious. If you are particularly fond of German Girls for the French Trade (and honestly, everyone should be!) then snap up this lovely girl before she is gone. We absolutely adore her!

***This sweet girl is available on layaway. Take up to eight months to pay! Give us a call anytime at 718-859-0901 to hear an in hand description of her condition and/or to discuss layaway terms!***

She has a lovely bisque socket head with two stringing holes on top, with icy blue glass paperweight eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, a closed mouth with a slight smile, and pierced ears. She stands at 13” on her original straight-wristed fully-jointed wood and composition body, and wears a gorgeous strawberry blond French human hair wig.

She is dressed in a gorgeous modern-made antique French-style frock set, consisting of a sleeveless dress and separate jacket, both in a bluish slate grey, with a woven-in square pattern. The jacket features a white silk placket down the front, decorated with an embroidered “N” emblem at the top, a pale blue-grey insertion ribbon border, and two tiers of cream lace edging; there is also cream lace trim at the front of the bottom, the sleeves, and the collar, and slate grey silk ties at the waist. The underdress has cream lace trim on the collar, sleeves, and skirt. Underneath, she wears a matching antique white cotton underwear set of a half slip and pantaloons, both with tiny eyelet lace trim. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and black leather slippers. On her head is a small straw fascinator, with a spray of cream-colored silk flowers and pale blue-grey tulle, with green wire and white ribbon at the back. A wonderful and classic presentation!

MARKS: 120 / 3 [incised, back of head]

CONDITION: Excellent. Her fine quality bisque head is free of any cracks, chips, hairlines, or restoration, with wonderful modeling and painting of the face. The original body has repainted upper legs and touchups to the rest of the body. Her costume is good, and fits her excellently. WOW! Tuck her in a little corner of your heart!
