'Sublime Beauty' aptly describes the ethereal presence of this serene Bebe from the Emile Jumeau period. Dressed in her original, albeit strengthened, ensemble of lace over spring-tone floral silk with matching lavish bonnet and original and correct signed Jumeau shoes; Mademoiselle is incised Depose E10J and stands 21" tall. Her French HH wig is superb and she has lovely, unblemished applied ears with pink pearl ear drops and her bisque head is pristine. Her original straight wrist body is stamped with the blue Jumeau Medaille d'Or Paris. This is a luscious example of the grace and beauty Emile Jumeau was famed for. Magnifique! $10,500

Ahhhhhhh, Schmitt! What elements were garnered to create you? Spirals of icicle blue in your lovely enamel eyes, hues borrowed from warm, ripened apricots for your rounded cheeks, roses at the height of bloom to grace your lips, and gentle shadings of dusk to shadow your lids. Such a marvel is this 18" beauty, garbed in a period styled antique satin and lace frock with matching bonnet. Twice marked with the shield on head and body, she is truly poetry from days long ago. Her lovely pale bisque has been well guarded and she awaits her next custodian patiently. $17,400.00

Oh, Ma Petite Cherie! What a precious little cherub by the Gaultier firm. Early incised F.2.G. at back crown rim, she stands a mere 11 inches. This tiny princess has the most bewitching blue pw eyes. Her deftly painted face emulates the somber face of a child. Gorgeous antique dress, luscious mohair wig and tiny antique leather shoes make her a charming and delightful package! $5950

The magic of the Emile Jumeau period glimmers in the brilliant lapis blue glow of this petite 15" mademoiselle's gaze. Mystically beautiful with radiant, perfect bisque, original wavy gold mohair wig still attached to her original cork pate; she is incised Depose E6J and residing on her original straight wrist, blue Jumeau stamped body. This bebe has a look that simmers in your memory long after she has left your gaze. She is adorable in her ecru over blue point d'espirit net lace dress and matching bonnet. Simply spellbinding! $8400

When the Hilda Toddler came on the scene, she simply wowed her adoring public. Such an innocent face with such expressive modeling! This priceless morsel has more than most... her original wig, gorgeous original period light blue and ecru wool cap and frock, all in superior condition! This little lass is just a tiny-mite at 13.5 inches, however, she has outstanding presence! $3100
