Bébé Jumeau Triste

An especially gorgeous 25 1/2" Bebe Jumeau 12. Long Face, or Triste model with exquisite modeling that will make a sympathetic collector very happy, as she is one of the most expressive, and just plain beautiful, dolls of this type that we have offered.
Details include exceptionally luminous bisque, but not a perfect bisque head due to a repair on the back and right sides. The exquisite painting of the facial features was not affected by the restoration work. Further details include palest blue paperweight eyes highlighted by abundant mauve shadow, pierced applied ears and a fabulous, blonde mohair wig worn down in a mass of curls.
Her classic straight-wrist body is in good condition and retains the original paint finish showing normal wear, and it is complete with the blue Jumeau stamp. (Exhibiting repair at the neck socket area.)
She's dressed for a fete in her antique cream and ice blue satin Mlle. Polichinelle costume that is resplendent in gold bullion trimmings and bells. A magnificent matching chapeau perfectly frames her lovely face.
This Triste may look like a million dollars, but she'll cost you just a fraction of that!

Emile Jumeau Bébé

The picture of soft, dreamy, elegance, this E. J. model Bebe Jumeau could not be more beautiful to our eyes. Standing fifteen inches tall, this classic E6J features perfect, peaches and cream bisque with lovely, even painting, gorgeous chocolate brown eyes highlighted by mauve shadow, pierced ears and a brunette, human hair wig styled in soft curls.
On a straight-wrist body with the original paint finish and boutique stamp, it remains in very good condition, showing normal wear. This bebe Jumeau's dress is a work of art in burgundy silk velvet upon which has been lavished gorgeous embroidery, while silk ribbon accents and lace completes the decoration. Lovely under things and marvelous antique leather shoes complete her look...aside from her coordinating chapeau, that is!

Bébé Jumeau 1907

20 1/2" Bebe Jumeau 9, a very pretty SFBJ-era 1907 model, with features that include a perfect bisque head with gorgeous coloring, an open mouth with teeth, lovely blue paperweight eyes, pierced ears, and her heirloom, auburn human hair wig in its original set.
The paint finish of the wood and composition body does exhibit normal wear, and obviously, the hands were flaking (a typical issue for this era) as they have been nicely refinished.
The presentation, of palest lavender silk satin and brocade, is beyond rich with its a matching chapeau and dramatic feather plume, plus Mlle. wears antique Alart shoes in size 8.
An exquisite French bebe who is cabinet ready and affordably priced - a definite win win.

Bébé Gigoteur

We love the charm of this twenty-two and one-half inch Steiner Gigoteur – a magical combination of mechanical marvel and beauty.
For those of you not familiar with the models sometimes referred to as "crying – kicking Steiners," these dolls were originally designed to portray agitated infants. When the internal mechanism is wound and while lying on its back, the doll cries, while moving its arms, legs and head in a realistic manner. When lifted, the arms, legs and head continue to move, but the bebe changes its cry to a definite "Mama" and "Papa" – a feature that was surely nothing short of magic to a nineteenth-century child!
The doll boasts a perfect bisque solid dome head, an especially wonderful expression complete with an open mouth and two rows of teeth (possible loss to a baby tooth on the lower left), pretty blue paperweight eyes, and a very charming mohair wig.
Featuring a body in clean condition with composition limbs, it is complete with a Paris retailer's paper label on the torso. The nails are realistically painted on the fingers and toes - sometimes an indication that the doll was made for Au Nain Bleu.
The doll's original presentation includes a lovely dotted swiss baby dress with lace insertion and additional lace accents, a woolen under-dress and a coordinating lace bonnet.
Featuring a mechanism in good working order, this bebe is a truly great example of Steiner ingenuity combined with sheer beauty.

R. 12., cheerful blue paperweight eyes with nicely painted lashes and brows, an open mouth that features an upper row of teeth, a definite smile, and a dark blond mohair wig worn as a ponytail.
On a jointed wood and composition body that exhibits normal wear, Monsieur wears an 18th C. inspired ensemble in aqua silk faille with metallic accents - a smashing hat, and antique shoes complete the look - one which is obviously sublime.
