Jumeau, long sad faced Triste bebe, closed mouth, 30"

Jumeau Triste Bébé, 30" tall, face mold created by Jumeau chief designer Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse of Sèvres.

Pierre François Jumeau originally partnered with a man named Louis Desire Belton, (Belton & Jumeau).  Belton died before 1846 and Jumeau continued to make the beautiful bisque Bébés dolls loved by antique doll collectors today. 

 

Up until 1872 many bisque heads were supplied by Eugene Barrois until Jumeau built it's own porcelain factory in 1873. About 1878 second son, Emile Jumeau, took over from his father who retired.

 

In 1899 Jumeau became a member of the SFBJ - Societe Française de Fabrication de Bébé & Jouets, until their demise in 1958. Many of Jumeau's earliest dolls are considered works of art.
