Here is a very rare find: Something unique that had most certainly been

produced at the time of the release of PARIS BEBE by JUMEAU in 1892 to show

customers and resellers the revolutionary way in which members were connected

of these babies only by springs while all the other babies had the body

connected by rubber bands.

On the photos below: Two PARIS BEBE JUMEAU a size 5 and the very rare prototype

of PARIS BEBE JUMEAU in size 8 and with a “skeleton” body! This very rare prototype is

available and unfortunately rough on the left side of its face.

Photos and prices on request. (Sold)

See you in “ANTIQUITES BROCANTE” of June 2016

Pretty BABY JUMEAU “Pop Art” style!

Here is a discovery I just made: maybe some of you already know her, but for me it is the first time that I see such a Mily de Gégé doll. This is one of the latest models with folding legs and new in its never played box, but the face is totally different from the classic Mily we are used to seeing. The head has not been replaced it is marked Gégé. Certainly a very great rarity! Here are some photos followed by the model we all know (08/09/2014):

Testimony of sympathy from one of our youngest “Fan”!


Marie-Françoise’s 60s underwear was

marked “Marie-Françoise”! Example above on the Marie-Françoise

60s blonde almond eyes currently for sale on the site

with his keychain.

Do you know that the inside of the arms of the first

Marie-Françoise from the 60s is marked “MF 39”?

Here is a very rare model of 1st Marie-Françoise called

“Francette” thereafter, presented in its very rare original box

(doll private collection)

BELLA created in 1967 for the magazine MARIE-FRANCE a very special and very particular doll (she wore a uniform: the one worn by the hostesses of Marie-France, that is to say a lime green suit with white tie and matching shoes. Some have compared it to the MANY doll and even say that it is the one and the same doll! It is not! MANY was also made by BELLA and sold in Department stores such as Bon Marché but it is very different.

DO NOT CONFUSE THEM! MANY is not MARIE-FRANCE and vice versa: they are two different dolls. They have the same body, both measure 45 cm, but the faces are different, MARIE-FRANCE is more smiling and her head is smaller.

You can form an accurate opinion by looking at the two dolls photographed together, the differences are obvious! MARIE-FRANCE on the left wears her official uniform.


None of these dolls are available for purchase at this time.

They represent a very interesting documentation for informed collectors and also for beginners. All these BON MARCHE BABY dolls are in their original condition, and we can therefore recognize their boxes and especially their shirts, very characteristic with their embroidery.

These are all JUMEAU mold dolls, made by JUMEAU for the first doll currently on sale, or early SFBJ for the latest model.
