Another Bru Jne Image

Here’s another photo of my doll, an 1890’s reproduction French Bebe doll, named Bru Jne.  The doll has a porcelain head, shoulder plate, lower arms and lower legs.  The body, made of vinyl, is stuffed with sawdust.  I painted the face: eyelashes, brows, lips and cheeks with china paint before  firing the head the 2nd time.  The eyes are cemented in the head.  I also sewed the dress, purse and hat.   I found the wig, stockings and shoes at a ceramic show.
