She stands 21 inches tall. She has a nice full mohair wig that is easy to style, its soft with no matting or knots.
She has pierced ears with tiny earrings on. Her face is delicate with feathered brows, painted lashes, dark blue eyes. On her right eyebrow there is a tiny firing bump.She has peach blushed cheeks and an open mouth with little teeth. Her stringing is good and holds a pose. I think this is her original body and the composition is intact with some chips and wearing here and there. The composition body is stamped Jumeau on the back. Additionally there is some kind of writing above the stamp that is interesting but I cant make it out.
All fingers are accounted for. I will point out that there is a fairly tight hairline that is stable because it extends down to her upper eyelid and after that there is no where else for it to go. Also around the top edge or her head there are a couple of wig pulls and there seems to be some type of glue around that area as well. Her clothes are nice and I take them to be original. The little sheer cotton dress is fragile with a few stains and some small scattered holes.
I added the silk sash around her waist. The navy bonnet is sweet with a feather and lavender flowers.
Her socks and shoes fit her very nicely and also appear original. Sorry, she doesnt have any underclothes.The cork pate is a good fit for her and seems to be an original also. I will say one thing about these less than perfect bisque head dolls when they have a hairline.
That makes them all the sweeter to own. Thanks for looking at this lovely French girl.
