18 Inch Closed Mouth German Kestner Child Doll on Original "Excelsior" Stamped Body

This is an exceptionally pretty closed mouth bisque head child doll by J. D. Kestner. This is the mold #128, one of only two numbered closed mouth Kestner child dolls. She has crisp modeling, pale creamy bisque and a pouting expression. Her original plaster pate is in tact beneath a replacement mohair wig. (We will need to remove the in-tact pate or drill a small hole in the plaster for stuffing the head during shipment.) She is on the "Excelsior" stamped Kestner body with original finish excepting a light retouch of paint to the original hands. She has large amber glass sleep eyes. The clothing, under clothing, shoes and socks are antique and she is carrying a darling koala bear muff. There are a couple of splits in the dress fabric. There are no cracks, chips, breaks or repair to the bisque head. She is fully marked on the back of her head as seen in one of the photos.
