AN ORIGINAL PAIR OF
JUMEAU SIZE 6 SHOES
There is little better and more desirable in the way
of dolls shoes than those made by Jumeau. So
difficult to get hold of, particularly with the leather
tops in such fine condition as these. They are
really lovely - and if you don`t have a size 6
Jumeau, well, pop them in the top of a Bebe`s trunk - if
your doll is a size or two either way, what one sees in
a display is often an illusion and a bit of size
difference is just not noticed. The top stitching
is perfect other than the inside edge of one shoe where
it is mssing. All perfect around the ankle
straps - and original buttons and sound button holes -
that`s a brilliant point as the button holes are often
split. The leather is in beautiful condition
retaining a very strong unfaded colour. The
rosettes on the toes are also original and perfect.

The soles are inscised as one would
expect with the Jumeau bee mark, Paris, Depose,
and the size 6. There is a split to one part of
one sole which shows a sign of some old glue. It
is perfectly sound - but I imagine this was added at
some time in the past to ensure it was strengthened.
The other shoe has a minor split in the same area.
I think when the sole was incised with this groove, it
no doubt was incised a little deeply making it a thinner
spot. However, this is not a problem but pointed
out for accuracy. They are a gorgeous pair of
French shoes, and so difficult to find.
