Bébé Bru Jeune 5

16 1/2" Bebe Bru Jeune 5, a marvelous example in a great smaller size, with fine features that include a perfect bisque head and shoulderplate, gorgeous coloring and modeling, hypnotic blue paperweight eyes, a delicately painted mouth that includes a molded tongue tip, pierced ears and a darling blonde mohair wig styled in soft curls - also a great match to the pale brow color.
On her original Chevrot body that exhibits normal wear, the paint on the lower legs is in good original condition. One of the Bru bisque arms has seen a well done repair, while the left arm appears to be perfect.
Brilliant blue and cream silk do double duty to make this bebe's ensemble a standout. Notice how the blue in the dreamy costume helps make those exquisite eyes sparkle! Antique leather bebe slippers and a gorgeous, antique velvet chapeau help make this doll cabinet ready.
A lovely example in a manageable size - anyone should be proud to call this beauty their own.

Bru Bébé Teteur 6

We are thrilled to offer this entirely factory-original Bru Bebe Teteur, or Nursing Bru, and at nineteen inches, she is the perfect size, too. Actually, this example is exceptional for two reasons – her inner workings are still in place, and her body is as close to mint condition as one will ever find.
If you aren't familiar with how a Bebe Teteur works – with the turn of a brass wing nut found on the back of the bebe's head, she was able to empty a special "bebe" bottle of its liquid, and then...well, return the liquid to the bottle.
Highlights include a gorgeous perfect bisque head and shoulderplate, deep brown paperweight eyes, her original and just plain darling curly mohair wig, plus the required open mouth with beautifully modeled full lips and pierced ears.
Her original Chevrot-patented body, in spectacular condition, is complete with a fully intact paper label and features the carved wood arms (offered for a very short period of time) which retain the original paint finish in wonderful condition – do not miss her bead bracelet that spells "bebe"!
Her original presentation includes a three-piece bebe ensemble of white cotton faille, which consists of a jacket, wrap-type bottom which button up to encase her lower body, and an eyelet bib. In addition, she wears a fabulous faille and eyelet bonnet with lace and ribbon loops, plus pantalets, and white cotton booties over knit stockings.
Truly, the ultimate in a Bebe Teteur!

Bébé Jumeau 11

26 1/2" Bebe Jumeau from the SFBJ era - we are pleased to offer an exceptionally sweet example with a pretty, and perfect, bisque head marked only with her size number, 11. Additional features include lovely coloring and painting, an open mouth with teeth, gorgeous blue paperweight quality sleep-eyes, pierced ears, and a wonderful brunette mohair wig which is styled in soft curls.
On a fully-jointed composition body, the original paint finish is in good condition, although it looks as if the hands have seen their paint refreshed. There is an interesting paper label on the doll's back, denoting that she visited a doll "clinique" in Grenoble at some point in her life.
Her deluxe ensemble is composed of delicate printed silk taffeta, with abundant lace accents, plus pink silk ribbon bows. Original under things, and antique leather bebe shoes (showing wear) sweeten this already very attractive deal!
