Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful doll. However after having examined the photos very carefully we have come to the conclusion that it is a replica/fake Jumeau doll. The details in the face, on the material of the body together with the overall 'newish' look of the doll does not reach the very high standards of a genuine Jumeau antique doll. If this doll were to be sold the estimate would be below 30 US$ and the description should clearly indicate that the doll is a replica of an antique Jumeau doll.
However the shoes looks old and antique as does the undergarments and the dress the doll is wearing.
I am very sorry for this unfortunate news. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the antique doll.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
