Original Antique Doll - Made in France. Bisque Head / Composition Body - Stands Approx. 23.5" Tall - Incised: DEP 11, with Dark Red "TÊTE JUMEAU Stamp. Body Labeled: "BÉBÉ JUMEAU / Diplôme d'Honneur".
"Stunning" doesn't begin to describe this Jumeau's unique and striking beauty! Her real and lifelike expression makes you think of the girl next door. Her complexion is peaches and cream, with finely-feathered molded eyebrows and beautiful gray-blue sleep eyes that are bright and cheery, highlighting her pleasing intensity.
Her head was made for the Jumeau factory by Simon & Halbig. She has a very long and curly strawberry-blond French human hair wig in a hairstyle well suited for her face and personality.
Her original French ball-jointed composition body has its original finish, which appears to have some paint touch-up on the hands but no repairs. She is wearing a stunning, quality-made two-piece outfit and undergarments that fit her like a glove. The pictures don't do justice to how awesome this outfit looks on her. She has gorgeous shoes with ribbons and socks. And, OF COURSE, she comes with that darling little antique leather coin purse.You couldnt find a prettier Jumeau! She was well loved and cared for, and will look gorgeous in your collection. Don't miss this opportunity; a lovely one like this doesn't come around that often. Beautiful antique condition, from a non-smoking environment. No issues found with the bisque after careful examination. There appears to be some paint touch up on hands but no repairs. As with most of these DEP Tête Jumeaus, there is loss of body finish in the joint areas.
IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE - for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of "hair" lashes on bisque heads, not-so-tight stringing, etc. (2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors - for example: reset eyes in most cases! , repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc. Any MAJOR issues -- hairline crack, total repaint, etc.
- would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not. They are to be expected. I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER.

As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they're doing. And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective.
BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition.There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls. IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION. The item "DEP 11 Tete Jumeau 24 Signed Body Beautiful!
