Due to a cancelled layaway this darling baby is being relisted. This is an exceptional and big 21" baby made by JD Kestner. This darling baby is the wonderful 257 model and is such an excellent example. She has huge brown glass sleep eyes with wax, expert painting on lashes surrounding her big beautiful eyes and feathered brows. Her bisque is of the finest Kestner quality with a lovely blush to her cheeks and she has a well modeled open mouth with a tongue and two teeth. Her wig is antique with and antique cardboard pate. She is marked Made in Germany J. D.K. 257. There are no hairlines or repairs to this pretty head and no flaws that I can see.
She is on her original five piece baby body with it's original finish. What a nice big baby body with the red lines still on the fingers and toes. There is a repair on one finger on her left hand and the body has some normal age wear but very nice.
This adorable baby is wearing a very pretty antique light weight cotton baby dress, antique underwear and the cutest vintage bib that says"Baby". She has a darling antique bonnet and pink knitted booties. Her darling little white teddy bear comes with her.
How could you not adore this wonderful 257 baby! Picture her sitting in a carriage or a high chair! A big beautiful Kestner darling c. 1900
