PRETTY DEP JUMEAU IN WONDERFUL CONDITION
What a special
DEP Jumeau this is! So so pretty and in
wonderful condition. Other than her shoes and
socks - she is totally original! She has sleep brown eyes, and open
mouth with teeth. Her body is excellent quality
which you see in the photos below, with little playwear . Such a nice
size too - measuring about 16.5 inches. It is
believed of course that Jumeau wanted to sell a cheaper
doll and heads were made by Simon and Halbig for them.
These were then mounted onto French bodies - as this
girl is. The heads are incised DEP together with a
size number - this girl being a size 6.
Interestingly, she has two fingerprints to either side
of the incised DEP from when she was touched during
manufacture and whilst the colour was still wet.
Such a part of her history. She has her original
French cork pate. Just look at
her original wig too... it is beautiful, really thick
and and in super condition.Oh such a pretty girl with
such an eager and lively expression .... I love her ....
