This is a fine 21" tall antique Kestner side part boy china head doll, though he is wearing a lady dress. He has a very nice antique body that the head was probably matched to, as the china lower legs are Alt Beck & Gottschalck (ABG) limbs. The china arms are very well made vintage replacements.
He has no undergarments. The attractive vintage dress is an iridescent dark gray with elaborate black trim around waist and neckline.
The shoulder head is in good condition. There are no chips, cracks or repairs to any of the china parts. There is some minimal wear to the black hair in back. The shoulder head is 5.5" tall, 4.5" across shoulders, and approximately 2.75" deep at the base.
Boy china dolls are much harder to find than the girls. Give him a suit and let him keep your lady dolls company.
