Exquisite 20 Early Jumeau Portrait Fashion Poupee, circa 1875. Dressed in a beautiful two-piece outfit of dark blue and white cotton with ivory silk ribbon gathered trim salvaged from an antique Victorian lady’s dress. The skirt front and back are accented with large dark blue ribbon bows. The jacket and skirt are both lined with black cotton. The jacket closes with tiny hooks down the front under the ruffle. The dress was made by Carol H. The outfit includes antique underwear and white leather shoes. She is wearing a floral decorated hat and her blonde human hair wig is in the style of the period and compliments her creamy bisque and pale blue glass eyes. The bisque has no hairlines, cracks or other damage. It is in excellent condition. Her cloth body and legs are in fair condition, with some patches. Her kidskin arms have split open at the creases and need to be taped. (see photos) I have wrapped them in cellophane to secure them. With her lovely, realistic facial features, she is a favorite in our collection. The item “Exquisite 20 Early Jumeau Portrait Fashion Poupee” is in sale since Thursday, August 10, 2017.
