DOLL STARES INTO YOUR SOUL!
Dolls are often appraised on “Antiques Roadshow” but there’s something odd and creepy about this doll’s stare. 
She’s Bebe Jumeau Doll circa 1890. While she almost has a unibrow, it’s her eyes that make this doll look like it should be possessed. According to the appraiser, the doll has blue glass paperweight eyes which give it that unusual stare. 
When you do a Google search for “blue glass paperweight eyes in dolls” and you’ll see a vast array of freaking scary dolls. 
This doll was appraised by doll expert Floyd Jones who said:
"What you purchased is a French doll. Made by the Jumeau Factory in France. Made anywhere from 1885 up until 1900. It’s marked similar on the back of the head as it is in the front; "Bebe Jumeau." On the back of the head if we turn it around… it’s also marked "Tete Jumeau." And it’s a size number eight. What it also has is the original cork pate. And if you look at the eyes, they’re blue glass paperweight eyes. The wig has been replaced. Very similar to a wig that would have been on it in the beginning. Even though it gives the look of being all original, this is a very good copy of the Jumeau chemise that they made."
The doll is worth between $3,500 and $4,500.
