Jumeau, circa 1878, the model for this poupee face transitioned into the portrait bebe; it appeared as poupee or fashion doll for a short time only. Both the poupee and bebe were shown at the Paris International Exposition of 1878, winning the "Medaille d'Or" award and signifying the firm's transition away from the poupee and toward the bebe.
