Antique French Bebe Tete Jumeau Doll Bisque Jointed Sleep Eyes Lever 15" Wood For Sale
You are offerding on a beautiful antique French doll. She is a "Bebe Jumeau" Depose Tete Jumeau. 15" Bisque head, with "sleepy eye" or eye closing lever mechanism. Wood and composite jointed body. Fully dressed in what appears to be her original underclothes, an extra lace underskirt and a pretty peach dress and matching bonnet. The dress has metal snaps, which we do not know if were added later or original to the dress. The underclothes have pearly buttons. The blonde curled wig has a made in USA tag inside. Sleep eyes still work nicely, and will stay open, closed, or half closed, but mechanism sticks slightly and has to be moved gently. The cork inside her head is intact and appears to have been reinforced at some point with extra glue. none of that can be seen when her hair is on. Her body has a few points of damage, like the thigh, see photo 9, but no major breaks or issues to the limbs and none to the torso. joints move smoothly. Her face was broken in a few places, but has had what appears to be a "professional" restoration long ago. see photos 10, 11, 12 for close ups of the repairs. It was well done, and could probably be restored further. Very sweet pretty face. Has blue earrings on metal hooks. all fingers intact. lovely hand-painted eyebrows eyelashes, lips. PLEASE ask any questions, we are by no means doll experts. we have more photos as well if you would like to see other angles please e-mail us a request for photos. PLEASENOTE::::: we have received a suggestion from a potential buyer that for shippingwe remove the cork pate and stuff her head with tissue to protect the head from further damage and protect the eyes and mechanism. We will MOST definitely do that if the winning buyer would like. Thank you!
