Darling 11 in. antique Kammer & Reinhardt character doll referred to as "Marie" mold #101. Bisque socket head on a fully jointed Kammer & Reinhardt body. Painted facial features with blue painted eyes. Wearing a artist replacement mohair wig, about 20 years old, with coiled braid at each side and wispy curls that frame her face. She is nicely marked on the back of her head "K star R 101". She is on her original K & R pinkish composition body, fully jointed at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips and knees. She is wearing an old handmade net lace dress in a light ecru color, with lace trims at the neckline and sleeves. She is also wearing old undergarments (2 slips and a one piece adorable onesie). Her socks are old in a greenish color and her shoes are a cream colored leatherette with silver tone bucks at the front. She is a lovely cabinet size "Marie" and a wonderful example to add to ones collection. Please read condition below and look at all of the photos as they are part of the description.
CONDITION: No hairlines to her bisque head. There is a factory flaw on one side of her head along the mold line as shown in photo #5. This was done during the firing process. A few wig pulls which are shown in the above photos. K & R dolls are famous for wig pulls. Facial coloring is very nice with a little cheek rub and a tiny one on her nose. Her lips have some paint scratches. None of these take away from the beauty of this doll. Her one leg is a tiny bit longer than the other. You can see it in her knee joint. This is her original leg. Some cracks to the body as shown in the photos and wear a little wear at the joints. One area of the upper thigh has wear as shown in the last photo. All fingers are present with normal wear. Stringing is a little loose but still works to hold a pose. Very nice. Her clothing has stains and some holes consistent with age. Shoes are very nice. Socks have soiling. No odor and from a smoke-free environment. While I make every effort to describe my items to the best of my ability I encourage you to look at all of the photos so that you can form your own opinion of condition.
