Charming 24" Antique 1880's French Bebe JULES NICHOLAS STEINER Doll FIre A 15 Product DescriptionPlease wait for invoice number 2 reflecting insurance coverage before making payment. THANK YOU! CIRCA: 1880's This breathtaking Paris, France, Jules Nicholas Steiner doll has, we believe, descended through the same family from her manufacture in the late 1800's. She can be accounted for being in the family as early as 1916. She was strictly for display, and never permitted to be played with, her condition is testament to that. She is a Series A doll, which are not as easily found as the Series C. dolls. As you can see, she is simply breathtaking. Gorgeous, supple fair cream colored skin, bisque swivel head socket, pierced ears, feathered eyebrows, lightly tinted lids, painted upper and lower lashes, fixed blue corkscrew paperweight eyes, closed mouth with outlined lips, accented nostrils and corners of eyes, and composition body jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Long flowing black hair, which we believe is human hair, but we do not know this for certain. Marked as following: J. STEINER Bte S. G. D. G. PARIS FIre A 15 SHIPPING: The posted shipping includes professional packaging, insurance, signature confirmation, and the cost of shipping. CONDITION REPORT: Excellent cosmetic condition. Unplayed with. Bisque head and paperweight eyes are perfect. No chips, cracks or rubs.
