Collectors always have room for one more doll, especially a perky little 150/9 toddler like this girl. Any little corner will do. Her rosy smile is pert, and there is a speck of darker paint on her lips. Looks like a birthmark to me. Her multi stroke brows and thick lashes surround sparkling blue eyes. Her eyes are stationary. She stands 7" tall.
There is a flake off of her right thigh up by her 'buttocks' and also a flake on her right shoulder. There are slight mold flaws and flecks in her bisque, which is in keeping with a doll this old. Her wig seems original, as does her hat. I've seen a picture of another 150/9--called all original--wearing the same hat only trimmed in lace. The doll's wig was similar as well. Her outfit is not original, but well made from vintage materials. Closures are hooks and eyes. Her panties/bloomers are a bit roomy on her.
From what I can determine through reading, "Doll Makers and Marks" by Dawn Herlocher, Kestner made these dolls in the early twentieth century and quite often sold them undressed. She has no sticker on her body, but her back has the mark 'Germany'. 150/9 is on her head. I took as many photos as I could. Please excuse the terrible light. Here in upper Michigan, we are still having dark days and snowstorms.
Thank you for checking in. Please ask any questions. I'll be happy to answer.
