Steiner A19 Bebe


Emily Hart, Grandmaster of Dollmaking, in 2017 now celebrates 27 years in Dollmaking, specializing in the Reproduction of the rarest French Bebe dolls.

Emily presents: French Bébé Antique Reproduction doll. This is known as an A-series Steiner originally made by Jules Nicolas Steiner from the 1880's into the 1900's.

EXTRA FINE PAINTING done in February of 2017, Absolutely FLAWLESS

Poured in "Lady White" porcelain and with many layers of China paint meticulously applied and firings in between each layer

The skin tone is very lovely and ultra pale and with eye shadow and rosy cheeks

Eyes are the ultimate in quality French solid glass paperweight by Hand Glass Craft of England in mauve color

She wears necklace, earrings and matching bracelet of genuine Swarovski crystals and Swarovski glass pearls.

Her wig is fine mohair in auburn color featuring center part, bangs and soft curls.

She is on an Authentic French reproduction composition body handmade by Dick Grube. Please note, I changed the lower arms to tone in better with her face color also there are a few tiny spots of paint imperfection on the upper front legs as can be seen in the photo.

Lovely ONE OF A KIND French style Bébé costume is entirely made from Antique cotton batiste with Antique laces, and trimmed with silk ribbons and handmade silk ribbon flowers.
Undergarments are half slip and bloomers made from the same Antique cotton batiste and Antique laces.

Socks are hand knitted silk/rayon and shoes are in the French style hand made from silk taffeta and with leather soles.

This doll stands 18 inches and 20 inches to top of bonnet.
This is one of the few Mary Lambeth costumes left as she has retired now two years ago so there will never be more of her costumes made.

Of course I want to keep them all for myself, but I have to sell dolls as this is my living.
