Kammer & Reinhardt Child Doll 31" Tall Gorgeous
The original K*R body is unmarked (K&R did not mark their bodies, but they are easily recognizable from their characteristics) with loose-ball-joints. The body is strong, high quality, composition and very heavy and sturdy. The K&R bodies have a finish with a pleasing rosy tint from several layers of paint. The torso has slightly molded breasts, rib cage, navel and rounded stomach. In back, it has molded shoulder blades and a protruding buttocks with a deep crease, but flat across the bottom. Arms are turned wood, both upper and lower, with a separate elbow joint. Hands and individual fingers are nicely detailed, showing dimples and knuckles. Fingernails are outlined in red and there is a red accent line at the base of each finger. See more on page 132 of "Simon & Halbig Dolls, The Artful Aspect" by Jan Foulke. The body is in very good condition with typical wear at the joints, a flake off the palm of the right hand, and one replaced knee ball.
She wears an antique dress of light navy blue with small white dots, with a small collar and a dropped waist. The dress has hand feather stitching embroidery embellishments and buttons down the back. Several buttons are missing. She wears pink socks and newer leather moccasins. Her wig is a high quality mohair replacement that suits her beautifully.
Condition: Excellent; no chips, cracks, repairs, or rubs to the stunning head. Body with lighter than typical wear, mostly at the joints.
