Too cute! This little prize is actually a “Prize Baby” made by Kestner somewhere between 1880 and 1910. She is all bisque and stands 5” tall and is jointed at her hips and arms. She had molded socks with a blue line at the top and black painted shoes. She has a label on her belly that reads: “PRIZE BABY REG US PAT OFF MADE IN GERMANY” On her back is the Kestner mark that has Made in Germany in a circle around another circle with JDK in the middle. It is hard to read, but is clearly Kestner’s mark.
She has brown sleep eyes that work well. She has single stroke painted brows, lashes, rosy cheeks and a closed mouth. Her blonde wig is in an updo with tine curls.
Her dress is clearly not original and is made of pale blue taffeta and netting.
This item is in very good condition and is free of any breaks, odors, repairs, scratches etc and is freshly restrung.
