THERE ARE SO MANY REASONS…to want this doll.! She is 9” tall, has Original Clothes, is blond with Blue Eyes, has a Bent ‘Wrestler' Style Arm and dazzling and rare Black & White Bootines.!
For an All Bisque in the 'Wrestler Family’, she has a very unusual and beautiful face.
She is presumed Kestner, not just because of the body - but the face is much like a ball jointed Kestner Closed Mouth Doll. The depth and intensity of her modeling is much more expressive than most all bisque dolls. She has a sweet pale bisque, and blue spiraled PW's which are surrounded by long graceful eyelashes giving her that starry eyed storybook demeanor. Her brows are multi-strokes and her lips come to the shape of a little kiss.
A LIFE LIKE BODY…Her body is a real ‘tour de force’ …it is so well formed.! There is muscular detail everywhere possible. Her torso has a molded chest as well as shoulder blades,. Her limbs are also very shapely giving the impression of lively movement achieved by the bend of her elbows and turn of her wrists. As already noted, the left arm bends Wrestler style at a right angle and the hand is in a cupped position. The fingers are quite thoroughly articulated with curved thumbs and creases inside the palms. Her legs are outrageously curvy with rounded calves and thighs to either side of a very round dimpled knee. This, coupled with the tilt of her head, gives her a saucy energy.
HER VERY SPECIAL BOOTINES…complete this unique picture. A very soft grey, they are practically white, and this is enhanced by the very white knee high stockings. The bootines have black outlines and a jazzy exaggerated design with dips and peaks. They have black on white vents, 4-straps, heels and toes. These mignonette bootines are quite eye catching and set her apart from all the other styles of boot. The stockings are quite ribbed, giving the leg even more interest and they stop with the blue trim just short of the knee as if to showcase it.
HER SILKEN ENSEMBLE…is as fine as everything else about her. The stitched on underwear is surely the original. It is completely charming - a crisp Polished Cotton having an abundance of fussy half inch lace trims. It is picture perfect. The camisole cannot easily be removed without cutting the little ties, but we were able to slip off her pantalettes to better display her legs and bootines. Her pure Silk Dress is probably original and perfect. The bonnet is an addition…a multi-ruffled and pleated confection worthy of her luxurious quality. The wig is Antique Mohair and it too is mint.! This 9” All Bisque Sweetheart proudly stand 9” tall projecting a ‘star quality’ that everyone will notice.
TUCK HER IN WITH…your 'Size 1” Bebés and other 9” rarities and she and you will both be very happy.
