Outstanding Georgous Petit All Original 11” Block Letter Fg Bebe Size 2 Lr:
Here is an amazing, early, petit, FG Bebe in near perfect condition. She came from an estate so she had not been on the open market so get ready to offer. She has a exquisitie full face, huge blue/grey bulgy almond shapped, sprial thread paperweight eyes, fabulous lashes and brows, marvelous closed mouth, original cork pate over original mohare wig, original french body, stunning original fully lined silk drop waist dress, original pantaloons, socks with amazing original leather shoes along with her matching bonnet. It’s been a long time since I have had an FG Bebe, as I seem to always have the french fashions and not the bebes. She is 11" tall and marked very clearly with block letters F 2 G and as made in the later 1800’s by the Francois Gaultier Company. She has beautiful delicate features, smooth, pale, smooth creamy pressed bisque with no chips, cracks or hairlines and her coloring is amazing. She has huge wrap around, almond shaped, bulgy blue/gray bulgy paperweight glass eyes along with painted upper and lower lashes and light mauve shadow above her eyes. She has wonderful full rosy cheeks with more of a square looking face in my opinion with a double chin and dimple. The shading to her closed mouth and lips is outstanding and she has pierced ears with no chipping and I think original glass earings. She has her original cork pate over her original fabulous mohair wig that is super, but could stand to be styled, but I’ll leave that to you. There is a long braid that's wraped around her head with curls in front and it frames her face perfectly. Her original, chunky, wood jointed and composition French body is in excellent condition and still retains the original finish. I think at times the body’s can have a store sticker or blue stamp but this one seems not to have it, or if it did, it’s gone now. There is some normal wear but not much and no flaking or peeling. Her hands and fingers are perfect and she has a bigger butt and chunky thighs and she has wonderfully detailed knees. She is wearing her outstanding, original drop waist silk dress in perfect condition. It’s a blue/green color I think, with long snug sleeves and a drop waist with a wide sash around the waist with wide pleats on the skirt. There is a panel in front that goes to the sash and it a bit darker then the dress and covered with delicate antique lace in front. There is a huge bow in back and it hooks up to the neck. Her dress is totally lined with no rips, tears or repairs. Her original matching bonnet is outstanding with a stiff brim sort of gathers with a huge matching bow. Like her dress, her bonnet is silk lined and has a darker band around the top and it fits snugly on her head. Her antique pantaloons are super and she has her original socks and her fabulous original french shoes. They are excellent but one of the buckles on the toe of her shoes is gone. She is a stunning petite, FG Bebe and would be the perfect addition to any French collection. This exquisite, all original, 11" Block Letter FG size 2 should sell for well over $4500.00 but my reserve is less so don't let her get away. Lucky winner pays $33.00 S/I and international would be more. Email any questions and thanks for looking.
