Emile Jumeau 7

19" Emile Jumeau 7 bebe, marked 7 over EJ, with classic features that include a perfect pressed bisque head with a smooth pale finish, striking pale blue eyes with spiral threading, dreamy mauve shadow, a marvelous strawberry blonde mohair wig and pierced ears.
On a classic straight wrist body, this lovely young lady wears an Ernestine Jumeau-inspired couture ensemble of tan silk faille, with accents of red silk and lace at the placket front and the cuffs. A further tribute to Madame Jumeau is the lace overlay and spiral rope decoration. Antique under things, a coordinating bonnet and Jumeau shoes complete her extremely sophisticated look.

Bébé Jumeau 9
A Papier-mache Rarity

Appearing perhaps more like impressionistic art than a mere plaything, is this never before seen Bebe Jumeau – in papier-mache! Most of the mark is illegible, but the size "9" is there. The size corresponds to an Incised Jumeau model, the characteristics of which are also represented in the modeling.
Further details of this twenty and one-half inch rarity include painting just like her bisque sisters, gorgeous blue paperweight eyes, a closed mouth, pierced ears and her original blonde mohair wig.
On a jointed composition body with straight wrists and an old re-paint finish showing normal wear, Mlle. Jumeau wears an beautiful dress of blue and white cotton print - one that depicts children and animals in daily activities, including playing with dolls. Jumeau shoes in her size complete this incredible package.
For the consummate Jumeau collector, this doll is a must-have!

Emile Jumeau 6
on a Wooden Body

There is much more to the lovely Bebe Jumeau shown here than meets the eye - her special feature is her all wooden articulated body, perhaps Jumeau's answer to the Bru firm's Bebe Modele.
This lovely child stands just under seventeen inches tall and features a perfect bisque head that is marked 6 over E. J.. Further details include gorgeous coloring and painting, blue paperweight eyes of the dramatic, early, striated variety, applied ears that are pierced and a beautiful pale blonde wig styled in abundant curls.
The wooden body, which was fitted on a few models in the years between 1879 and 1881, appeared in only one size. The articulation allows for very nice posability, and the condition of this body is good, with the original paint finish intact showing only normal wear. The mark, JUMEAU MEDAILLE D'OR PARIS, is deeply impressed into the wood.
Mademoiselle wears a very sweet antique bebe ensemble in French blue satin with delicate lace accents, plus lovely antique leather boots in her size that are complete with both silk rosettes intact, while a fabulous bourrelet with blue silk accents is a real treat.
A rare opportunity for the advanced Jumeau collector.

"Elizabeth"

"Elizabeth" is a very special Jumeau Portrait who was available only in three sizes when originally offered by the Jumeau firm, and here she is in size 10, standing twenty-two and one-half inches tall.
Details include a perfect pressed bisque head with character-like modeling, blue paperweight eyes in even eyecuts that are accented by mauve shadow, applied pierced ears and a lovely, antique, blonde mohair wig styled in abundant curls.
On an early, eight-ball jointed body, the condition overall is fair to good, exhibiting the original paint finish showing wear (especially to fingers) and remnants of paint from an old overpaint. The body is complete with the blue stamp that reads: JUMEAU MEDAILLE D'OR PARIS.
Elizabeth is a true fashion plate wearing a classic ensemble in pink with stunning black silk velvet accents, with gorgeous lace softening the edges. A matching chapeau and antique Alart bebe shoes in her size tie the bow on this very pretty package.
