Bébé Bru Jeune 8

We believe the definition of ultimate “Dolly Happiness” just might be fulfilled by the Bru Jeune 8 highlighted right here in front of you.
Details of this hauntingly beautiful, twenty-two and one-half inch bebe, include a perfect bisque head and shoulderplate, and note the modeling of the head features that “vulnerable, concerned look” we all love. In addition, there is a very prominent tongue, indescribable pale blue paperweight eyes, mauve shadow, a fabulous antique deep blonde mohair wig, and pierced ears.
Featuring a patented Chevrot body with lower carved wooden legs, complete with a partially intact paper label, her lovely bisque arms do have a repair to one finger on each hand.
Mademoiselle Bru wears a lovely ensemble in gorgeous pale pink brocade with pale pink chiffon and lace accents. In addition, she wears a matching dramatic chapeau, antique under things, and black leather bebe shoes.
Don’t you think this spectacular Bebe Bru could be the one?

Bébé Steiner
Gigoteur

Who couldn't love the childlike charm of this seventeen and one-half inch Steiner Gigoteur – a magical combination of mechanical marvel and beauty?
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the models sometimes referred to as "crying – kicking Steiners," these dolls were originally designed to portray agitated infants. When the internal mechanism is wound and while lying on its back, the doll cries, while moving its arms, legs and head in a realistic manner. When lifted, the arms, legs and head continue to move, but the bebe changes its cry to a definite "Mama" and "Papa."
This example features a perfect bisque solid dome head, an especially wonderful expression complete with an open mouth and two rows of teeth, pretty blue paperweight eyes, and her original natural curly lamb skin wig.
Featuring a body in clean condition with composition limbs, it is complete with a the Steiner stamp on the back. The nails are realistically painted on the fingers and toes - proof that she was initially retailed at Au Nain Bleu, Paris' most famous toy store. The doll's presentation is composed of a lovely antique bebe dress in cream silk that features fine lace and feather stitching. Note also that she wears a coordinating chapeau and very nice antique leather bebe shoes.
Featuring a mechanism in freshly-cleaned, perfect working order, this bebe is a truly great example of Steiner ingenuity.
