" price an absolutely SPECTACULAR RARE FULLY ARTICULATED WOODEN BODY 19" ANTIQUE EARLY "ROUND FACE" BRU FRENCH FASHION DOLL! We don't come across a MUSEUM QUALITY Poupee of this caliper that often, and we are offering her at a substantially REDUCED PRICE due to an old and very fine hairline--------an EXCEPTIONAL doll for the EXCEPTIONAL COLLECTION! A gorgeous and IMPRESSIVE DOLL that was the earlier predecessor to the "Bru Smiler" Fashion doll, this lovely lady is often referred to as the "ROUND FACE" Poupee as she has more plumper modeled cheeks than her younger sister! And this particular example has the very rare deluxe TRI-COLOR glass eyes, her original patented Bru fully ARTICULATED WOODEN body, wonderful full antique blonde mohair DELUXE WIG with small ringlets, and all antique PROMENADE ENSEMBLE; you will love her MAGNIFICENT PRESENTATION! She wears a fabulous silk and wool blend two piece original antique Fashion doll outfit consisting of a tan and cream colored checked long sleeved jacket and matching full skirt, and has WONDERFUL WORKMANSHIP, including well made seamstress fitted tucks on the jacket which also has a fashionable inverted "V" insert down the front of the bodice and rounded hemline with ruched edging around the front and back, which is also mirrored down the skirt front! As with many antique doll clothes, the jacket is straight pinned in the front for closure, but the skirt has a hook and eye enclosure around the waist; please note there is some minor age soiling and small holes to the fabric, the most obvious on the sleeves where it is a tighter fit, but since the material is a wool blend it is fairly sturdy and the age wear not very noticeable. Underneath she wears LAYERS of antique Fashion doll undergarments including antique white wear consisting of a V-necked CHEMISE, matching lace trimmed HALF SLIP and PANTALOONS, and a later added tie-on BUSTLE gives that extra "oomph" to her backside! Her antique blue FASHION STOCKINGS and antique black leather shoes with silver buckles and black ties fit her to PERFECTION! Her Fashion jewelry consists of a three piece MATCHING SET including a cobalt blue glass and gold beaded pair of earrings, bracelet, and tiny bar pin; these were more recently made items from vintage beads especially created for her!

To complete her outfit she wears an antique COQUETTISH HAT that sits on the top of her head, made of finely woven navy blue straw accented with vibrant royal blue silk trim and white floral embellishments that accents her outfit and matches her jewelry, giving her just the right flair! Due to her size, she has the the more defined "ROUND FACE" early Bru Fashion doll features, with very plump cheeks and wonderful rounded DIMPLED CHIN, with the most EXQUISITE facial modeling and artfully painted features including MULTI-STROKED rounded arched eyebrows and individual eyelashes, beautifully OUTLINED LIPS with turned up corners, and STUNNING PALE bisque with subtly blushed cheeks! And look at her rare and early TRI-COLOR deluxe paper weight glass eyes; they actually have black pupils in the center encircled with a band of olive green, then the outer circle is a band of beautiful cobalt blue in color with fine SPIRAL THREADS------they are MESMERIZING and so very hard to find!

She has a fabulous full antique blonde MOHAIR WIG with an abundance of sausage curls framing her face and antique cork pate! Her original patented Bru and FULLY ARTICULATED wooden body is a work of art with just minor age wear; jointed and articulated at the upper arms, elbows, wrists, upper legs, knees, ankles and classic SWIVEL WAIST, with original patina and all of her fingers and toes intact, and she has her original SERRATED LEATHER collarette which is the signature wooden body Bru factory original shoulder plate covering! The back of her head is incised with the letter "H" corresponding to her size, and she has her original neck socket connection and bisque shoulder plate! There are no chips repairs, or restoration to her bisque head and shoulder plate, but because of a very fine old hairline that runs from the top of her crown down the side of her forehead to right below the side of her eyebrow, she is being offered with a SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED price to give you the opportunity to own an amazing doll at a fraction of the cost you would expect to pay if she were perfect, considering her size and fully articulated wooden body, as well as her GORGEOUS PRESENTATION-----she will be the focal point of your collection! This SPECTACULAR RARE FULLY ARTICULATED WOODEN BODY 19" ANTIQUE EARLY "ROUND FACE BRU FRENCH FASHION DOLL WITH TRI-COLOR EYES is a MUST for the advanced collector-------truly a MUSEUM QUALITY Poupee that will be treasured for a lifetime!
