Bébé Jumeau
First Series Portrait
4

This striking Premier Portrait Jumeau from the First Series, in an impressive size 4, is sure to please any collector of early bebes, as she is simply twenty and one-half inches of graceful serenity.
Special details include gorgeous bisque with lovely coloring - but do note that the bisque is not perfect due to hairlines on the forehead - one visible and one overpainted - but neither show with the wig in place.
Further details include hypnotic, spiral-threaded, pale blue eyes which were set in very even eye cuts, abundant rosy-mauve eye shadow, and a full and beautifully styled brunette human hair wig – all on the early ball jointed body. The original finish is in fine condition and includes the Jumeau stamp.
A portion of this magical doll's appeal must be attributed to her spectacular ensemble which created from the most lustrous royal blue silk velvet imaginable. It is also enhanced with luxurious off-white satin and fine lace trimmings. A coordinating chapeau and antique French boots tie this presentation together – beautifully.
A world class Bebe Jumeau that will be an asset to any fine collection - not to mention an exceptional opportunity for the sympathetic collector.

"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.

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.

Bru Bébé Teteur 6

We are thrilled to offer this entirely factory-original Bru Bebe Teteur, or Nursing Bru, and at nineteen inches, she is the perfect size, too. Actually, this example is exceptional for two reasons – her inner workings are still in place, and her body is as close to mint condition as one will ever find.
If you aren't familiar with how a Bebe Teteur works – with the turn of a brass wing nut found on the back of the bebe's head, she was able to empty a special "bebe" bottle of its liquid, and then...well, return the liquid to the bottle.
Highlights include a gorgeous perfect bisque head and shoulderplate, deep brown paperweight eyes, her original and just plain darling curly mohair wig, plus the required open mouth with beautifully modeled full lips and pierced ears.
Her original Chevrot-patented body, in spectacular condition, is complete with a fully intact paper label and features the carved wood arms (offered for a very short period of time) which retain the original paint finish in wonderful condition – do not miss her bead bracelet that spells "bebe"!
Her original presentation includes a three-piece bebe ensemble of white cotton faille, which consists of a jacket, wrap-type bottom which button up to encase her lower body, and an eyelet bib. In addition, she wears a fabulous faille and eyelet bonnet with lace and ribbon loops, plus pantalets, and white cotton booties over knit stockings.
Truly, the ultimate in a Bebe Teteur!

Appearing more like impressionistic art than a mere plaything, is a Bebe Jumeau – in papier-mache! Perhaps the true Bebe Incassable is actually this never before seen doll a Bebe Jumeau 11.

On a fully jointed composition body with an original paint finish showing normal wear, Mlle. Jumeau wears an original blue-flowered Jumeau factory chemise, that is complete with its gilt-lettered label. Lovely Jumeau shoes in her size complete this incredible package.
For the consummate Jumeau collector, this doll is a must-have!
