Gorgeous Early Totally Original Size 6 15” Block Letter Fg Bebe W/skin Wig Lr :
Here is another spectacular super early, size 6 block letter FG Bebe in near mint condition with her original straight wrist 8 ball body. This amazing FG Bebe is totally original from her head to her toes. I have had 2 other all original FG Bebe’s recently and in my opening this one is so much more outstanding then the other 2. She has an exquisite full, square face, huge blue bulgy, almond shaped, spiral thread paperweight eyes, fabulous lashes and brows, marvelous closed mouth, original cork pate over her original skin mohair wig, original 8 ball body, marvelous totally original dress, original slips, pantaloons, socks and marked leather side button boots along with her fabulous original matching bonnet. She is 15" tall and marked very clearly with block letters F 6 G and was made in the mid 1800’s by the Francois Gaultier Company. She has beautiful delicate features, smooth, pale, smooth creamy pressed bisque with no chips or cracks and her coloring is amazing. She has huge wrap around, almond shaped, bulgy blue bulgy paperweight glass eyes along with painted upper and lower lashes. She has wonderful full rosy cheeks with more of a square look to her face and has a wonderful double chin with dimple. The shading to her closed mouth and lips is outstanding and she has pierced ears with no chipping and she has the original spring in her head at the neck socket. I’m told this FG is a very early one and she really does look totally different then the other 2 I have. Now, before we talk about her outstanding mohair skin wig you need to be aware of an invisible hairline in the corner of her right eye that goes to just before the ear. It’s hard to see and I didn’t notice it at first. Its not a break and the eyes are still intact and have never been out of the head. I left the hairline be so you can sort of see it up close. It can be cleaned and in fact, with bleach the hairline would more then likely disappear and bleach does not in any way damage the bisque. She has her original cork pate over her fabulous soft curly mohair skin wig that is in perfect condition. These FG’s looks so marvelous with the skin wigs and I’d rather see that, then any other type of hair. The color of the wig is one of cleanest I have ever seen and it makes her pale bisque look even more amazing. Her, original, chunky, wood jointed and composition straight wrist 8 ball body is in near mint condition and still retains the original finish. There is hardly wear but there are scuff marks on the backs of her lower legs and her left shoulder but that’s about it. She has marvelous thick straight wrist, chunky hands and fingers with just a bit of rubbing on the tips of a couple fingers. This is a fabulous 8 ball body with chunky thighs and an elongated butt. She is wearing her outstanding long sleeve original dress in almost mint condition. It buttons of the back and it has snug long sleeves with lace trim around the cuffs. Her blue/green original dress is outstanding and has smocking down the front and back along with another 2 rows front and back of matching lace that’s around her sleeves, front and up over the shoulders. Her dress is in excellent condition with all the buttons and it has no rips, holes or repairs. There is a bit of the lace trim around the cuffs that needs to be stitched but I’ll leave that to you. She has her original slip and pantaloons that tie at the waist and have wonderful matching lace edges but I am sure they could stand to be washed, but again you’ll get to do that. Her original socks are super, but again are soiled with age and her original side button boots are wonderful as still have the glass buttons on the sides. Now the boots are really fragile and have splits on the seams in front and back but I;m told they can be stitched, but she does have all the glass buttons on the front. The shoes are stamped on the bottom but it’s hard to make out what it says. It almost looks like a bottle with some numbers and word but I just can’t get the right angle to make it show what it reads, but there are her original shoes. She has her original stunning silk bonnet in perfect condition. It has a wonderfully full top and the rim is trimmed in the same laces as her dress along with a big beautiful bow in back and long silk ties. Even with the hairline she is one of the most exquisite early French FG Bebe and is much more impressive and gorgeous in person and would be the crowning glory in any collection. This exquisite 15’ early totally original Block Letter FG size 6 should sell even with the hairline for well over $5000.00 and would book for more more like $8000.00 but my reserve is less so don't let her get away. Lucky winner pays $35.00 S/I and international would be more. Email any questions and thanks for looking.
