This offering is for a lovely early bisque shoulder head doll by Kestner that measures 24". The original kid body, with bisque forearms, is marked with the Kestner purple stamped logo. This girl has all the fine details we expect of Kestner dolls. Keep in mind our customer friendly 3 MONTH LAYAWAY plan is available for this girl.The description follows.
SHOULDER HEAD: The bisque is of excellent quality, with a pale color and naturally blushed cheeks. She has finely, thick feathered brows, large original brown sleep eyes, handpainted lashes, red eye corner & nostril dots, an open mouth showing teeth and naturally painted lips that form a pleasant smile. The doll wears a replaced light blond wig with sausage curls. The "154" mark is the only one visible (please refer to photo). In order to view the other marks, the upper edge of the kid neckline would have to be destroyed since it is affixed to the bisque. The shoulder head is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks, hairlines, factory flaws, faded features, restoration or other issues present.
BODY: The leather body has cloth legs and nicely blushed bisque forearms. There are chips on the right hand's index and middle fingers. The leather body has the purple stamped Kestner crown mark on the chest portion. The body is in very good vintage condition. There is wear and browning in a few places, but no sawdust leakage is present. The fronts of both cloth lower legs have a pinpoint hole, without leakage. One leg has turned slightly to the side due to shrinkage of the cloth over time. I mention it for the sake of accuracy.
COSTUME: Dolly is very chic wearing an ivory silk like coat that is lined. The coat is abundantly decorated with a silver & pink floral decorated ribbon. The style of the coat, with its large collar, is simply gorgeous. A matching beret adds that final touch of class. Vintage undergarments are present, as well as stretch stockings and pink satin shoes. This girl is display ready and guaranteed to fully meet your expectations.
