Beautiful Kestner China Head Doll with Fab Body

This pretty girl measures 24" tall and is just wonderful with her wasp-waisted body. The body is antique and appears to have been recovered at some point. It's tightly stuffed and has some weight to it. The arms are entirely leather and one of the hands has a split that was taped with scotch tape when I bought her nearly 10 years ago. I have never fixed the hand and will stabilize it with a gauze wrap for shipping. The head is in undamaged condition. There are some tiny kiln specs and 2 tiny pinhead sized glaze 'pops' at the tip of her nose and one at the corner of her right eye as you face her. I only found these while examining her with a magnifying glass and are imperfections which occured during the manufacturing process. She has 2 small rubs to the back of her head.

Her dress was obviously made for her as it fits her perfectly. It was probably made sometime within the last 30 years or so, and the style fits her to a T with it's low cut bodice which shows off her sloping shoulders and the tightly cinched waist. Her undergarments which consist of a slip and pantaloons are antique.

She's a wonderful antique china doll with quite a presence and will be a great addition to any china collection.
