CONDITION: Excellent. Very beautiful pale bisque with pleasant pale color, finely painted features, well modeled face with somewhat character expression and desirable square cut teeth the lovely antique spiral blue eyes have been reset and there are some minor wig pulls and surface bisque inherent scratches to the side of the head.. The rear crown rim has a bisque sliver missing. The early body is in really good condition with mostly all original condition but has had some touch ups to the arms and repairs to the knees. A desirable early Kestner for the connoisseur with the most desirable early Kestner body to resemble the early Jumeau bodies and it is contemporary to the early Jumeau dolls as well.!! A wonderful little cabinet ready cutie! WOW... I have never such an adorable version of this early Kestner and I can guarantee that it will be a real showstopper in your collection!! Don't hold your breath until you find another early Kestner of this caliber again!
