A STUNNING BEBE -   CLOSED MOUTH TETE JUMEAU

Don`t we all really want to own a stunning closed mouth Jumeau?  Well  this is a gorgeous Bebe as you can all see and shows the superior quality of Jumeau dolls.  She is an absolute stunner.  The body is in really good condition, shiny and of course beautifully made, with just a little playwear and the usual wear to the hands.  She has the Jumeau label on her lower back.  The head is of course fine quality with it`s cork pate and is perfect other than one very fine old hairline to the forehead. This is very difficult to see without a light inserted into the head.  However it does make her so much more affordable.  I have always bought fine dolls even if they had a hairline - they are after all childrens toys, and not all are absolutely perfect.  But it does mean they are a cheaper price and quite honestly with this particular doll she does not have any visually obvious damage to detract from her beauty.  So it`s something of a "win win" situation with her.  She measures about 22 inches and is a size 10, which can be seen together with the other original markings to the rear of her head.

The photos show  I hope what a beautiful doll this is.  However, it`s difficult to capture quite how lovely she is.  Beautifully painted face and blue paperweight eyes.  Original dark blond mohair wig - sparce now, but perfectly useable. Her clothes are lovely - she has cotton drawers, her original chemise and a lovely old blue silk dress with lace trim originally lined.  Cream socks and French style shoes.  I wanted to show more photographs than I can put on one page, so have split the photographs over two pages on my website - do look at the other page as well for more details and more photographs.   Just look at the photos!   Layaway is possible..  Any queries - just email me... 

This gorgeous TETE JUMEAU is SOLD
