Antique French JUMEAU fashion doll with rare swivel shoulder head and original gusseted kid leather fashion body. 11 inches in height, she has exquisite features, blue glass inset eyes, pierced ears and perfect later addition ringlet wig.

The original gusseted kid leather fashion body has lovely fuller figure with nipped in tiny waist. 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… FREE UK SHIPPING!

  1. I have just received my second little girl within just a few days of one another from Diane and, yet again, I am utterly amazed by the supreme quality and service Diane provides. Only ONE downside–viewing Diane’s website should come with a health warning—-YOU WILL BECOME ADDICTED!!! ( in the nicest possible way of course! tee hee)
