18" of a wonderful german bisque head Kestner baby doll, as only Kestner could make them!
This is a painted hair Kestner baby on the original Kestner composition baby doll body. He is just an adorable baby, makes you smile as the Kestner babies do! The bisque head is without damage, hairlines or restoration. Original sleep eyes appear to have been set and there is old plaster on the right eye that you can see with a possible tiny pinpoint of black color missing on his outside right eye cut.. Marked JDK on the bottom of the neck socket. There is a cheek rub on the far right side of the head, see pictures.
The composition body retains much of the original finish. A few fingers have repaint on them and the finish is somewhat rough. I can't tell if they have been reglued or just patching over some missing finish. One big toe appears to be reglued. Some edge wear on neck area and some thin lines of finish cracking on right wrist.
Baby is dressed adorably in an antique Christening gown (a little large) and the most wonderful cream colored cape with pale blue trim. He is truly a wonderful presentation!
