Sweet cabinet-sized doll incised very lightly on the back of the head "4" and having closed mouth with bee-stung upper lip, brown paperweight eyes, nicely arched and evenly positioned eyebrows, with well-done tiny lashes, and pierced earlobes; head attached to the original body with a coil spring. On the back of the torso is an unusual blue stamp low on the buttocks, reading "Brevete B te Jumeau". The body is fully jointed and bears most of the original patina with probably slight retouch to the hands. She has a long blond mohair wig and a brown velvet jacket with matching hat, with embroidered trim, cloth flowers and a beige silk and lace skirt with antique undergarments. Stockings are newer and she wears black leather shoes with rosettes with a stamp on the sole with the logo "Paris Depose" and a picture of a bumblebee. Minor slight kiln dust on cheeks. Condition: (Good). Dimensions: 13" T.
