What a lovely child. And a kind shopper informed me he is an ABG, not Kestner--so I apologize for the misinformation. I look mold numbers up on the 'Doll Makers and Molds' book, but I can't always find every mark so I am glad for the information. So, I see a little boy, here. But most people might see a girl. A pink sash would clinch it for you, or a ribbon in the bonnet.
He (or she) has the original wig. The socks look very old. I did not remove them because they cling so tightly to the kid calves and feet. There is a repair on his right thigh. It's a strong repair. The rest of his body's stitches seem strong.
The baby gown is antique and starched, and it is fragile in places. It has torn in the back on the lace--which I've shown. The gorgeous jacket and separate collar are also not original but are wonderfully made--possibly within the last few decades as I don't know when something of antique materials is recently made unless it's obvious.
No shoes or booties and no bloomers. No damage to his bisque head or his arms and hands. His eyes are stationary. His face is lovely and his marks are 639a with a stylized 's'. His head circumference is 5.5" and is solid domed. He comes with his little bottle.
With that lovely infant ensemble, this little child makes quite a presence. He would be a delightful addition in any doll cabinet. Thank you for stopping by. Please ask any questions. I'll be happy to reply.
