Jumeau did not stamp bodies until after 1878 and this doll is earlier so there would never have been a stamp or label. The kid leather fingers are very fragile and there’s general age wear to the body but overall it’s aged the years well considering it’s over 150 years old!. Outfit will have been made for her at some point over the years but has age to it and fabulous intricate detail. Back of the head is marked 38.
