30" Early Closed Mouth Kestner Child Doll

This beautiful early closed mouth Kestner child doll circa 1885 has very pale bisque, delicately blushed cheeks, blue glass sleep eyes, finely painted brows and lashes and a closed mouth with finely outlined lips.

She has a perfect bisque socket head incised 18 over 103 and has a slanted head cut like her French contemporaries. Her wig is pale blonde human hair with soft bangs and long curls and her pate is cork. Her bonnet is a confection made of silk and lace, but there is some damage to the silk in back that could be fixed with some TLC.

Her original chunky Schmitt-style composition body has straight wrists and is in excellent condition with original paint and varnish.

She is wearing an original aqua wool coat style dress with wonderful soutache decoration. Her underclothing is antique and she is wearing antique baby shoes that do not fit around her ankles.

This is a gorgeous large doll that would be a stand out in your collection.
