Text size:

This is the very first Bleuette model, called Premiere, made from a Jumeau mold in 1905. She is 10 and 5/8" or 27cm tall, with fully jointed body with correct markings. Her pale bisque head is perfect, has the most beautiful large blue paperweight eyes, little open mouth with four porcelain teeth, pierced ears.
She is wearing a fantastic couture outfit, entirely hand made and embroidered by Kathy O'Malley. Her wig is beautiful "Global" human hair. Her undies are made of batiste, outstanding quality! I do have her original long light brown mohair wig, it is a bit sparse on top and her original factory chemise, but they are not included with the doll. They could purchased separately.

2
Body is incised with Number 2 between shoulder blades

Condition
