Kestner Model 164 with beautiful blue eyes , 25 inches of girlish intelligence. This delightful girl has a short curly blonde mohair wig, attached original pate, gorgeous blue sleep eyes with all wax, painted upper and lower lashes, heavy multistroke eyebrows. Bisque is in excellent condition with one small area of surface scratches on upper left temple. Open mouth with four rounded teeth, and pronounced cheeks. Her composition and wood body is is fine condition, marked Germany in red, and there is old repaint at thigh, knee and shoulder joints along edges. There is a crack on back right forearm.
She wears a lovely dress made of multiple pintucked cotton. I believe this was made for her of antique fabric, sewn very well, and I cannot determine date. The dress goes over a blouse that has longer sleeves. The blouse has repairs (no wonder, since it is made of the finest, most delicate cotton lawn ever!) and many holes, but they cannot be seen when the dress is on. Also knickers are in fine shape. Dress itself is in excellent condition with a hole in the back and a bit of weakness at the waist seam. An old satin ribbon trims her waist. On her feet are very nice leather shoes. I have made a necklace for her. Marked K. // made in 14 1/2 // Germany / 164.
Shipping cost is approximate. I will refund overcharge.
