15.5 In. Marked Sz. 3 French Fashion, Swivel Neck, Gusseted Leather Fashion Body, Blue Spiral Eyes. Infantine - image 1 of 16

This could be considered an infantine or young child doll for your larger French Fashions display. The young lady is on a very firmly stuffed leather body that is so firm that the legs have drawn forward. This is a problem that can be overcome by removing some of the sawdust. She has the beautiful pale, pale blue almond-shaped eyes found on Jumeau fashions. If I had to guess, I would say she is from the Jumeau factory. She has beautiful smooth and flawless bisque, wide feathered brows, upper and lower painted lashes and coral lips with a darker shade of coral outlining in the right spots. Her ears are pierced (no earrings) and her cheeks are blushed. Her dark blond mohair wig is styled in loose curls and shorter length around her face. The size number "3" is incised on the back of her head at the top rim. She is wearing antique fashion shoes and stockings. Her dress is a lovely infantine style with butterfly sleeves. She has a white cotton blouse under it with lace trim and tiny buttons and buttonholes. Her clothes are antique in good condition. Her cotton/lace trim underclothing, a camisole, pantaloons and slip, are also antique and are in good condition.

Condition: The fingers on the left hand are recovered with thin but firm glove leather. Her left foot has a patch over the instep. Both are nicely professionally applied. Her body is otherwise in excellent condition with only a few punctures that need no covering and have been there a long, long time. There are no cracks, chips, breaks or repairs to the bisque head and shoulder plate. She is a good fashion to sew for as her body is firm and can support handling and redressing using care to keep her in this condition.
