Fantastic 20" Kestner 168 w/Original Wig and Clothing
Her body is original, though it looks like her lower forearms and hands have had a repaint long ago. She is stamped on her bottom in red as shown. Also, there is a little dimpled imperfection just below the mark. This is not damage, but looks to have been a flaw in the body during manufacture. She does have wear at the joints as should be expected for an early doll.
Her outfit is wonderful and consists of her under chemise which has attached pantalets, her dress, socks and shoes. Her dress and undergarments are trimmed in matching hand done lace and are in excellent condition. The soles of her shoes look to have been reinforced at some point and the shoes themselves have been polished with white polish. They are antique and a perfect fit for her. The ankle ties may have been replaced. The bows on the toes look original.
Her head is free of chips, cracks, repairs or hairlines. She has a miniscule nose rub on the tip of her nose, and there is a line of color that runs from one eyebrow toward the crown. It looks to be the same color as her blush and is very faint, but I did want to make mention of it. It appears to be something that occured during the manufacturing/painting of this particular doll, and can only be seen when her hair is pushed back from her face.
This gorgeous girl with her hard to find, early mold number will be a wonderful addition to any discerning collection.
