Exquisite A/o Swivel Head 17" Jumeau French Fashion W/marked Body/boots Lr:
Here is a gorgeous, all original, closed mouth, swivel head, early Jumeau French Fashion Poupee with an outstanding face, original cork pate over original mohair wig, huge wrap around bulge cobalt blue paperweight eyes and her original near mint marked Jumeau kid leather gusseted body. She has the most amazing original silk and lace French fashion outfit, slips, pantaloons, socks and original marked side button leather boots along with a stunning antique bonnet gathers and bows. Itâ€™s extremely hard to find the original silk outfits these days and this one is exceptional. This marked Jumeau French fashion Poupee is 17" tall and marked with I think, the number 6 on her head along with several artists checkmarks. She has beautiful pressed, pale, smooth, creamy bisque with no chips, cracks or hairlines and her coloring is fantastic. She has mesmerizing, huge, bulge, wrap around cobalt blue spiral thread almond shaped, paperweight eyes along with heavy painted upper and lower lashes and dark rims. The sculpting and detail to her face is exquisite and the shading to her closed mouth and full lips is stunning. She has a wonderful full, square longer face and delicate pieced ears with no chipping and I think original glass earrings. She has a swivel head on a wonderfully detailed shoulder plate that is perfect. She has her original cork pate over her original mohair wig. Her wig is marvelous with a braid that wraps around the back and wispy bangs that frames her face perfectly. Iâ€™m sure it could stand a bit fixing but I donâ€™t do hair. Her original, hand stitched, chunky, kid gusseted body is in near mint condition with no leaking or repairs and only one little patch on her lower arm and as with mother of these fashion, where is some discoloration on the arms. She has individual stitched fingers that are excellent and she is stuffed great with excelsior and has a fuller more well defined bottom and thighs and thin waist. I donâ€™t see a marked body often so this is a real treat to find she is marked at the waist in back Jumeau Medaille D Or Paris. She is wearing her outstanding factory original silk and lace 2 piece, French outfit that in excellent condition . Her silk and lace gown is amazing and the light green and cream colors are stunning. She has half sleeves that are made up of tiny silk pleats and silk bows. There is fraying or melting on the sleeves but itâ€™s in the creases so itâ€™s hard to see but itâ€™s there. The light green silk on the top has layers, draping material and gathers making a wonderful fullness in back, so it looks like she is wearing a bussel. The top has delicate lace in a V shape down the front with silk ribbon trim. There is more matching lace gathers around the draping and edges on top that swirls around the back with a huge silk bow. Her skit is tight at the waist with a layer of green silk that shows under her top with a wide panel of pleated cream colored silk. The bottom layer is pleated and has 2 layers of lace around the hem. As with the sleeves there is fraying it the creases and it seems to be only on the cream colors. You canâ€™t really see them except if you pull the peats apart. For some reason it seems like the lighter color silks on these fashions seem to fray and the darker colors donâ€™t and I have no idea why. There is a huge long flowing train that spreads out in back with 2 rows of the lace around the edges. Her train is lined with a pleated dust ruffle thatâ€™s starchy feeling and it helps her skirt hold the shape beautifully. She has her original long pantaloons and slip with lace around the edges She has on another slip thatâ€™s antique but not original to her. Her original socks are super and her original side button leather boots are marvelous. They are marked on the bottom with the number 2 and another stamp that I canâ€™t make out but I have seen it before on French fashions. Her boots are missing a couple of the glass buttons but I think those can be easily replaced. Her antique silk bonnet is outstanding with a full top and a huge silk bow in back. There are gathers and cording around the edges and itâ€™s has the the same delicate lace as on her dress, but, I donâ€™t it original. How many times have you seen such an incredible Jumeau Fashion with marked head, body and boots and she is breathtaking and will be the crowning glory so any French fashion, Jumeau or FG collection.
