Bru Jne Oriental Doll By Jackie Elige 15" 1969, Estate Find, Beautiful:
This is a beautiful antique reproduction Oriental bru JNE doll by 1960s-70s doll artist Jackie Elige, she measures 15" not counting her hair height, she is wonderful as shown, her face absolutely gorgeous with single stroke brows, hand painted lashes, open mouth and blushed cheeks, her brown glass eyes are fixed, not sleep eyes, she has pierced ears and is missing 1 of what appears to be hand crafted earrings, her black wig is hand styled and secured with hair pins, she has a leather body and porcelain or bisque wonderfully detailed hands and feet, she does not sit, made to stand only as shown, she has no chips, cracks, repairs, she is beautiful, she is marked on the back of her neck Jackie, 74, bru JNE, she also has a hand written note from her original owner who left notes on all her dolls identifying them and their makers, that reads Jackie Elige, Bru JNE Oriental 1969, so I think the 74 might be referring to this being the 74th doll made by Jackie Elige as the owner was very careful documenting her dolls history and purchase years. I purchased her in 2010 from the estate of her original owner who was a high end antique dealer in Long Beach CA in the 1960s-80s, she was also a serious doll collector who in the 1960s sold her antique doll collection, paid off her Long Beach home and then collected reproductions of the dolls she sold made by well known doll artists of that time, Virginia LaVorgna, Clare Wade, Jackie Elige and others. This doll is a beauty, almost 50 years old, possibly the only Oriental bru JNE by Jackie Elige, she would be a wonderful addition to any antique reproduction doll family. Rest assured it will be well packaged for safe arrival to you, thanks for looking at my listing, email any questions, have a great day
