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

Pierre-François Jumeau (1811-1895) originally partnered with a man named Louis-Désiré Belton (1805-1846) to form Belton & Jumeau in 1841, by 1845 the partners dissolved the business and went their separate ways.
