P

aul Cezanne, the celebrated French Post-Impressionist artist wrote, “With

an apple I will astonish Paris”. And that he did. In the smaller world of dolls, one might also bestow that praise on Emile Jumeau who throughout his decades-long reign of the French doll world continued to astonish all with his imaginative designs. Notable among the Jumeau designs was the Series Fantastique introduced in 1892, coincidentally during the very peak of the Cezanne era, and notable among the models of that series was the virtually never-found 218, portrait of an astonished child. It is that rare doll that highlights Theriault’s eagerly-awaited annual Summer Marquis auction. x

Condition: generally excellent. Comments: Germany, circa 1860, the doll is wearing original costume of the “Pit Brow Lass” of England mining industry. An article written by Erica Tanner in February 2009 issue of Antique Doll Collector, described the profession and the costume. An 1842 English law forbade woman working below ground in the “pit” coal mines; hence they worked above ground at the edge (the “brow) of the mine, sorting rock and dirt from the coals. For this they developed a unique “uniform”, which included sturdy trousers (unorthodox at that time) with twill

70.

patches at the knees for padding while kneeling to sort, beneath a skirt tucked up above the trousers, and sturdy black leather shoes cobbled with hobnails and rimmed with metal. So horrified were the gentry at this costume that laws were introduced to make the Pit Brow Lass work (and hence their costume) illegal. Marches to Parliament by women wearing the costume prevented the passage of the new law. Value Points: wonderful state of preservation of the rare doll with compelling expression and extremely rare costume. $1200/1600

The Very Rare Model 218 from Jumeau’s “Series Fantastique” About 1890 the salon pieces of French automaton maker, Leopold Lambert, were in high demand. And while many clients were content with the pretty classic bébé who daintily powdered her face while admiring her image, Lambert saw the opportunity of presenting automaton with an expressive face that more clearly fit with the mechanical action. How about a child who has just broken her favorite doll? Shouldn’t she be crying? (Clark #18) Or a baker exhibiting his playful kitten hidden under a brioche? A mischievous smile surely accentuated that action! (Clark #170). But where could he find the models that evinced such expression? Where else but his fellow entrepreneur Emile Jumeau? And thus, the art character models of Jumeau began their life. These automaton heads included various exotic persons as well as laughing, crying and whistling children. And there the Lambert/Jumeau story takes a twist. The Jumeau Book by François Theimer and Florence Theriault writes of this: “So pleased was Jumeau with this sculptural project that the decision was made to also produce the characters in bébé form…So successful was his


endeavor that character bébé models were then added to the line that were first made as automaton heads”. Putting his design team to work, Jumeau reworked the shape of the neck into the classic “light-bulb” shape of the bébé head, rather than the straight-sided neck needed by Lambert. He worked to create a variation in size although petite or grand sizes were never presented. The bébés were offered in sizes 9,10,11,12, and 13 only, with the exception of models 203 and 211 which were also produced in size 8. Jumeau called these bébés “Series Fantastique”.

Front and back of the 218 model.

Yet, sadly, these wonderful dolls failed on the marketplace. Perhaps they were too expressive for a clientele that wanted an idealistically pretty doll for their child. Perhaps it was their expense; the 1899 inventory of the Jumeau firm cites their price which was nine times the price of his standard bébé. At any rate, the bébés appear to have only The marking on the 218 model.

been presented on special commission or as exhibition models during the short 8 years of their existence. The dolls are extremely rare. Evidence lies in the 1899 inventory of the Jumeau firm upon its merging into SFBJ. This was especially true of the 218 model shown on this page. This valuable inventory cites that only 16 examples of the 218 model in size 11 existed in the firm’s inventory, and it is probable that most of these were white-complexioned. To understand this rarity, note that, in comparison, in 1886 Jumeau sold 130,000 standard bébés, and in 1892 he claimed to employ 1000 workers at this Montreuil factory. At the same time, and likely aiming to appeal to the wealthy international traveler who visited Paris, Jumeau introduced his series “Bébés de Quatre Continents” which featured dolls of four different complexion tones ranging from ebony black to light brown to amber to white. While most of the bébés from this series had the classic tete model face, in an extremely few instances the variant complexions appeared on “Series Fantastique” models. Such an example is the light-brown-complexioned 218 bébé shown on this page. It is the only example known to exist. The Series Fantastique ended in 1899, less than a decade into its life, although, as a last hurrah, the models were featured in a series of postcards created for the 1900 L’Exposition Universelle in Paris. Above: About 1890 Leopold Lambert commissioned Jumeau to create a series of “character” faces that would enhance his automata. One example is shown here. Those models were the origin of the Jumeau 200 character series dolls. These automata, later, Jumeau issued a series of bébés with these same character heads such as the model 218 featured in this article.

This landmark doll, the browncomplexioned model 218 from the “Series Fantastique”, is featured in this catalog as lot #17. x
