Kestner model 167 with wonderful brocade costume. One of the sweetest Kestner faces, this 15" beauty is a socket head with her original body stamped Germany / 0/3/4. Bisque is perfect, dark brown glass sleep eyes work well, the eye wax is missing from one eye, painted lower lashes. Open mouth with 4 teeth. This is the original body which has nothing to report upon but some chips around the neck socket and a right hand that has been replaced. She wears a beautiful sheath dress that is lace over silk faille and a gorgeous silk brocade cutaway long coat or paletot. her clothing has held up very well with some small areas of splitting silk. A cotton chemise may be original and knickers may not be, because they are holding up some well fitting semi sheer socks and delightful heeled oilcloth shoes. Not going to disassemble that neat arrangement. Your cabinet awaits! A dreamy little girl.
