on plate:
BRU BRU JNE 2

Labels on her chest are mostly un-intelligible


CONDITION: Excellent. The head and plate without hairlines, or restoration. The fine quality bisque with sensitive and delicate painting of features, very crisp modeling of captivating face with exquisite modeling around her “melt your heart”, hypnotic deep blue “bedroom” eyes and characteristic Bru Jne somewhat pouting mouth with a distinct and cute, desirable molded tongue and extremely full lips. There are very minor rubs to the lips and left cheek and both ear pierce holes have chips. Otherwise, the head is perfect and so is the shoulderplate. The difference in the number marks on the head and plate is not unusual for the Bru factory as they believed the head of a baby should be larger in relation to the body than that of an older child or adult, so they often paired smaller bodies with larger heads. This was also done to accommodate certain costuming choices. The bisque lower arms with delicately modeled hands, but the left hand having been restored and both original wooden feet with a very old repaint. This is indeed one of the shining stars the French Belle Epoch! And her diminutive size only adds to her desirability and status as one of the true Aristocrats of the Antique doll world! Here is your opportunity to own this unbelievable gem!!!

PRICE: $21,000.
