VCK36VT: Fashion w Accessories
This is an exquisite antique French Jumeau fashion doll, circa 1870s. She stands 17" tall and is in lovely condition. Swivel neck, original mohair wig. Lovely paperweight sky blue eyes, painted brows, lashes and mouth. Very pale bisque with rose blushed cheeks. Shoulderplate as a small divet, which occurred in the making of the doll and is the same color as the doll's face and the rest of the shoulderplate. Marked 4 on the back of her head. Cork pate, original mohair wig. Her body is in lovely condition with no patches due to holes, etc. No leaking of sawdust. Firmly stuffed and fully gusseted. She has a couple of tiny--very minor-- holes on one forearm. Individually stitched fingers. Dressed in a gorgeous mid 19th century dress with elaborate details. She has layers of lace and eyelet trimmed underclothing. Antique socks, antique shoes. She comes with an antique necklace which is shown pinned to her dress. She also comes with a lovey antique peach colored hat, accented with flowers which appear to be original. In addition, there is another antique dress in red and ivory, which fits her very well and has a slight bustle in the back. She has a very beautiful face, one of the best Jumeau fashion dolls we've seen. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. I have many, many additional photos, so please email me for those. Recently listed for $3200.00.
