11"antique French Bebe. Etienne Denamur. Compo Body Beautiful Bisque Arms. :
11" Etienne Denamur Antique BeBe. Size 2.
This darling cabinet Bebe has a pert, happy expression with cobalt blue eyes and a smiling open mouth. She has the heavy eyebrows that ED dolls are known for. She is marked "E2D".
Her body is most interesting as it is wood composition with METAL hinge jointing at the elbows and knees! The elbow on her right arm is stiff and I don't want to force it. The other metal joints work just fine. Additionally, her arms end in the most delicate, perfect BISQUE HANDS which are very similar to the hands found on French Fashion dolls with wood jointed bodies. How unusual!!
She is a doll for those who enjoy bringing these 100 year old antiques back to their former glory, and is not without her challenges. There is a firing separation on her pate opening that occurred during manufacture and isn't considered damage. And there is a flake with a hairline running from it on the right side of her head that goes down toward her eye. Not too surprising for her age. Please review the pictures as they are part of the description.
You will be so happy with this darling doll!
