Jumeau dolls of the late 19th century represent a perfect combination of doll-making technology and consumer demand for high-quality, stylish, elegant dolls. Jumeau mastered new methods of marketing, advertising, and production and applied them to doll manufacture. Jumeau b퀌�b퀌�s were considered the pinnacle of the French doll trade, and these dolls were sought after all over the world for their beautiful faces and their exquisite clothing. Collectors call this little doll an E. J. for the marks on the back of its head. The marks refer to Emile Jumeau, son of the founder. Emile transformed the Jumeau doll from an adult fashion doll into the bebe or child doll for which the company is best remembered.
