This is one of the most beautiful black dolls you will find. She has a perfect head with a perfect smooth complexion and is marked on the back: UNIS, FRANCE, 60, 6/0. She was made by the SFBJ Corp.(ca 1920) and most likely by Jumeau. Her face painting is expertly done.
She has her original set brown glass eyes in their original plaster. She has tiny painted eye lashes all around the eyes and an open mouth with four tiny teeth. Her brown painted complexion is flawless. The body on this doll is beautiful. It's in great condition, well strung and has a wonderful finish.It appears to have been professionally repainted. Her clothing has been replaced and is newer except for her flowered jumper. That appears to have been made for her sometime in the 1950's. Her replaced wig is simply pinned to her painted styrofoam pate. This is a hard to find cabinet sized black doll. The doll stand is not included.
