Outstanding All Original Beautiful 15" Jumeau French Fashion Poupee Lr For Sale

Outstanding All Original Beautiful 15

Here is another gorgeous, closed mouth, swivel head, early Jumeau possible Simonne Face French Fashion Poupee in excellent condition wearing her original traveling outfit. She has an outstanding face, original cork pate over her original mohair wig, huge, in-pierced ears, wrap around, bulge cobalt blue paperweight eyes, early hand stitched, gusseted kid leather body and fabulous individual fingers. She has her original traveling dress, original foux blouse with long sleeves, original pantaloons, full slip with ruffle down the back, original purple silken ribbons in her hair and around the neck, along with her original socks and fabulous original slide button leather boots. This Jumeau French fashion is 15" tall and there are no markings on her head or shoulder plate. She was made in the mid 1800’s and these early Jumeau fashions very often didn't have any markings or numbers but you can't mistake that face. She has beautiful pale, smooth, creamy bisque with no chips, cracks or hairlines and her coloring is fantastic. She has huge wrap around cobalt blue, glass paperweight eyes along with painted upper and lower lashes. The sculpting and detail to her full face is marvelous and the shading to her closed mouth and full lips is stunning. She has a marvelous fuller rounder face with in-pieced ears with no chipping. She has a swivel head on a beautifully detailed shoulder plate that is perfect. She has her original cork pate over her original mohair wig. The wig is still thick with a bun in back and wispy bangs that frame her face perfectly and has the original purple or lavender silk ribbon in her hair. This early hand stitched body is fabulous and could have had a blue stamp on the chest that read Simonne or Jumeau but sometimes those are so light and they just wear off over the years. She has individual stitched fingers that are excellent with wires in tacked so when she was made you could bend them but it’s not a good idea now. She has some discoloration mostly on the arms since they show all the time and her body is whiter or cleaner then the arms. There are 2 small patches on her upper arm but other then that there is no other holes or leaking. She is stuffed great with excelsior and has a fuller more well defined bottom and thighs and thin, tiny waist. It’s quit interesting to me, that on most of the hand stitched French fashion body's, the proportion of the tiny waist and the huge butt and thighs make it fairly easy for them to pop at the waist if held the wrong way. Again, this is an outstanding hand stitched body and her full butt makes her dress full in back like she is wearing a bussel but she does not need anymore padding. She is wearing her fabulous, original, traveling outfit in excellent condition. The dress is tapered an fitted to the waist with gathers that make her dress flair out beautifully around the bottom. Since she has a larger butt it makes the dress look like a bussel in back and it’s longer so it flows wonderful around the bottom. Her silk outfit has fabulous light lavender panels around the top with matching lavender cording or trim around the sleeves neck and around the skirt along with a wide row of delicate lace around the bottom. It appears there is a blouse under the top of the dress with longer sleeves, but in fact, it’s not a blouse but individual sleeves and a panel in front that buttons in back at the neck. I’m sure there is a name for for that but I have no idea and it’s in excellent condition with matching lavender silk ribbons. There is a huge matching long lavender silk bow which hangs down the black and ends at the top of the lace around the skirt. Her original pantaloons are excellent with lace around the bottoms and her original long slip have ruffles down the back and around the bottom. As you can see her original stockings are a light lavender to match her outfit and her original side button 2 toned leather boots just about perfect. This is a striking early Jumeau, possibly Simonne Face, French Fashion Poupee and would make an excellent addition to any French Fashion, Jumeau or FG Collection. This stunning, early, 15" swivel head, Jumeau French Fashion Poupee should sell for well over $4700.00 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.
