ARTIST MADE TETE JUMEAU – 18″ HEIGHT – LEATHER GUSSETTED BODY
This artist made doll is a reproduction Tete Jumeau that stands in height approximately 18″. She is signed by the doll artist on the back of her head and I suspect she is from the 1990’s era and has been well made and has no damage.
She has a bisque socket head that fits into a shoulder plate. She has stunning blue stationary set eyes with painted eyelashes and eyebrows and a lovely painted closed mouth. She has pierced ears with crystal like earrings. Her brown wig is full of ringlets.
Her body is a gusseted leather body with half bisque arms and legs. The leather bodies used to retail for around $75 alone.
She is dressed in a lovely cotton floral frock trimmed with lace and a matching bonnet. Underneath she has pantaloons, socks and tie up shoes. She is display ready.
This doll represents many hours of work and has been beautifully made.
