Bébé Petit & Dumoutier

It isn't every day that a collector has the opportunity to acquire a bebe from the Petit & Dumoutier workshop - we are pleased to offer a spectacular example here. Details of this character-like beauty include a perfect, pressed bisque head that is impressed P. 2. D, palest blue paperweight eyes that are enhanced by mauve shadow, pierced ears, and a blonde mohair wig that is styled in a mass of luxurious, long ringlets
On a fully jointed composition body, the original paint finish seems to have been given a wash to freshen it up, but the result is pleasing to our eyes. This example was not given the metal hands that are associated with this maker.
The doll wears a magnificent bebe ensemble in ice blue satin and gold silk brocade, while a coordinating chapeau is enhanced simply with exquisite silk ribbon. Antique leather shoes complete the presentation.

Measures: 18" tall (20 1/2" overall)

S.F.B.J. 247

For years now, collectors have referred to this SFBJ 247 character model as "Twirp" but this handsome young soldier in uniform isn't having any of that! Details of his delightful character include a perfect bisque head with telltale high color, blue glass sleep-eyes with the original lashes, an open/closed mouth featuring two molded upper teeth, and a sweet mohair wig in auburn curls.
On a jointed composition toddler body with the original finish showing normal wear, this happy fellow is beautifully costumed as a French soldier in blue and burgundy wool decorated with metallic trimmings, a colorful sash and a smashing military cap. Antique shoes complete the look.
By the way, your character girls will adore him - guaranteed.

Measures: 17 1/2" tall - 22" to top of plume

Premier Portrait Jumeau 4

This spectacular Premier Portrait Bebe Jumeau from the First Series, in the desirable size 4, is sure to please any advanced collector of early bebes, as she is simply twenty-three inches of graceful serenity.

A portion of this magical doll's appeal must be attributed to her softly-hued presentation, created from comforting challis wool. The ensemble is enhanced with touches of lace, and coordinating silk ribbon accents.
The luxurious silk brocade chapeau is crowned with delicate lace and ruched chiffon, while her socks and antique shoes tie the look together – beautifully.
Also included in this marvelous package is a daguerreotype of the doll when she was young, plus the original (albeit tender) hat will be included as well.

Bébé Andre Thuillier

We believe that good things also come in BIG packages, as evidenced by this 36" Andre Thuillier Bebe! Marked A. 15 T., this magnificent example features a perfect bisque head that bears lovely and signature modeling, hypnotic, deep blue paperweight eyes in even eyecuts that are highlighted by mauve shadow, pierced ears and a very full, brunette, human hair wig that is a perfect complement to her coloring and her brows.
On a jointed composition body that bears the original paint finish showing normal wear, and some flaking, this fine bebe wears a stunning ensemble in silk, that is complete with a matching chapeau.
A blue chip doll, that is most definitely destined for a blue chip collection, or simply put, a big bebe for a big collector!

Bebe Jumeau
A Premier

18" Bebe Jumeau - a phenomenal early portrait model (no size mark but probably size 1) is a necessary component of a fine bebe collection. This gorgeous doll, with perfect pale bisque, and jewel-like blue spiral-threaded eyes would certainly fit the bill. Additional features of this model include mauve shadow, pierced ears, a gorgeous original mohair wig in a lovely shade – all on the early straight-wrist, eight-ball jointed body in good condition, but showing some repainting to hands. We are not showing the body of this doll due to the fragile nature of the dress.
Mlle. Jumeau wears a classically beautiful original ensemble of cream silk and ice blue faille, but it is exhibiting scattered tenderness. The matching bonnet frames her serene face perfectly, and antique, brown leather Bebe Jumeau shoes are a nice addition.
An exquisite doll in an equally exquisite presentation.








Bébé Jumeau 12

Bebe Jumeau 12 from the SFBJ-era who stands twenty-six inches tall, details of this very pretty example include a perfect unmarked head with smooth bisque and lovely coloring, deep brown paperweight eyes highlighted by lush full lashes and classic Jumeau brows, pierced ears, an open mouth with molded teeth, and a lovely antique human hair wig worn down in soft ringlets.
On a jointed composition body with the original finish in very good condition, Mademoiselle wears a remarkable white lawn dress with abundant lace insertion, while antique leather bebe shoes in her size complete the lovely package.

Thank you, L.
