Bru Jne 13 "Babette"

Please Click on the Photo to view more views of this Beautiful Doll

The original Bru Jne 13 was produced by the Bru Jne & Cie of France during the latter part of the 1800's. Our reproduction Bru Jne 13 is 24" tall on a latex composition body. The socket head is poured in Lady White porcelain slip, and the skin tones are painted to closely match those of the original antique doll. She wears a mohair wig and has James Hand Glass Craft Paperweight glass eyes (hand blown in England).

The dolls produced by this company were and are among the most sought-after of the French dolls. The faces of the dolls are hauntingly beautiful and one seldom forgets the expression. While the Bru dolls are not as rare as some of the other antique French dolls, their beauty makes them highly desired and thus the price of the antique is usually beyond the range of most doll collectors. Having this type of doll in any collection is like having the "cream of the crop". The purchase of a well represented reproduction enhances not only a collection of reproduction dolls, but also the collection of an antique enthusiast. An antique Bru of this size would cost approximately $15 to $20,000 (US dollars).   Evelyn has studied Bru dolls for over 20 years, as an artist, teacher and judge.  Her museum-quality reproductions fit well into any quality doll collection.

Our Bru's costume is of fine fabrics and consists of a dupioni silk dress and hat, and finished off with cotton batiste slip and pantalets trimmed with French Val laces. Her socks are cotton knit. Her shoes are of French design, hand made by Evelyn. 

She comes complete with a metal stand, Certificate of Authenticity, Brief written history of the Bru Jne & Cie, and the Resume of Evelyn Stanbury, GMDM, International Award Winning Artist and Certified Doll Artisan Guild Instructor.

She is poseable on her composition body.
