Jumeau Portrait
Unusual First Series Model

A transition model to be sure, this early Bebe Jumeau exhibits the look of the earliest portrait models, combined with the traits and size numbering (10) of the very rare EJA examples, resulting in a singular bebe.
Details of this 25" doll include a perfect bisque head with amazing modeling and painting, early brown spiral threaded paperweight eyes in even eyecuts, abundant mauve shadow, pierced ears and a magnificent antique blonde mohair wig.
On the early style, chunky, eight ball jointed body, the paint finish here is in fair condition showing scattered losses.
Mademoiselle illustrates here that red is her color! Pleated cranberry wool was married with inserted lace for a brilliant presentation, while her dramatic matching chapeau seals the deal. Antique stocking and Bebe Jumeau shoes complete this smashing doll's look.

Bébé Steiner
Series A 6

How spectacular is this Series C Steiner in her lovely ensemble? Quite.
Features of this twenty-eight inch example, which is marked SIE. C 6, include a beautiful, but not perfect bisque head, due to a hairline on the left side of the face, plus an additional repair (extremely well done) on the upper right temple/forehead area, which is partially covered by the wig.
Further details include blue paperweight eyes with amazing spiral threading, wonderfully modeled and painted lips, lovely coloring, pierced ears and she retains her original skin wig that is attached to the original carton pate.
She is on her original jointed composition body with its paint finish refreshed, and showing normal wear. Mademoiselle wears a softly beautiful bebe costume that is trimmed with delicate lace, while a coordinating chapeau and antique silk shoes complete the look.
This Steiner has such an exquisite expression – one of intelligence and inquisitiveness.








DEPOSE Jumeau 6

14 1/2" Bebe Jumeau 6, an Incised DEPOSE model, and a dreamy-faced child with features that include perfect bisque, delicately painted features, very expressive blue, spiral threaded paperweight eyes, pierced ears, and her original mohair wig in a fresh and pleasing shade of honey blonde.
On the early, eight ball jointed, wood and composition body with the original paint finish showing a Jumeau stamp, normal wear and scattered flaking, this child is dressed for a day of play.
Classic lines permeate the gorgeous eyelet dress that was created in sturdy white cotton - most likely a Jumeau product. She wears her original pink Jumeau socks, but her vintage shoes could stand improvement.
A glorious bebe in every way, including her wonderful smaller size.

Bébé Jumeau 8

This exquisite French bebe fashion plate, marked DEPOSE TETE JUMEAU 8 in red, measures nearly nineteen beautiful inches tall. With perfect bisque and expressive, caramel-brown, paperweight eyes, we wonder if she is aware how stunning she is?
Additional highlights include lovely painting, pierced ears, the original mohair wig in a gorgeous blonde, and a classic jointed and labeled composition body with the original finish in good condition (possible re-painting of hands).
Mademoiselle Jumeau will arrive at your door wearing this fancy bebe ensemble, complete with this dramatic chapeau which any fine bebe would envy. The spectacular dress is of rich taupe silk faille, combined with deep pink silk and lace. Antique brown leather bebe shoes complete this exquisite presentation.
We believe that Madame Ernestine Jumeau herself would certainly approve.

Thank you, L.







Mlle. Polichinelle

25 1/2” (33" overall) SFBJ-era Jumeau featuring a perfect and beautiful bisque head, lovely coloring that is complimented by expressive and cheerful blue sleep-eyes, and a gorgeous light brown mohair wig worn down in soft ringlets.

Mlle. Jumeau is dressed for a fancy celebration in her very festive Mademoiselle Polichinelle costume featuring a combination of brilliant peachy pink and pale French blue silk, all with elaborate lace and metallic trimmings. We think you will agree that her fabulous hat is quite a festive bonus!

"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.

S.F.B.J. 129

Probably made from a Jumeau mold by the Simon & Halbig firm, this sweet child is more S.F.B.J. than German, so we have happily included her here with the other French girls.
Standing twenty inches tall, details include a perfect poured bisque head bearing the mold number 129, plus size 9,
blue glass set eyes with abundant, original lashes. molded brows, an open mouth with teeth, pierced ears and a darling antique blonde mohair wig styled in soft curls.
On a French, S.F.B.J. era wood and composition body, the paint finish is in good condition overall, showing scattered touch-up, and the hands have been repainted, a common occurrence due to the flaking of paint on molded hands of this era.
This bebe's costume is a sweet dream! Printed cotton featuring cherry blossoms on a blue ground was married with a delightful pink belt and collar for a super look. An antique hat accented with paper roses, and antique pink cotton shoes tie the look together beautifully.
