Exceptional doll! The deep blue alluring eyes on this beauty are shiny glassy, spiral and gorgeous. Her sleep eyes work well. Feather stroke brows and delicate upper and lower hand painted lashes reflect quality artistry. She's a delicate creation; her open mouth with four tiny teeth are accented with coral lip color and deeper coral lining. Soft blush and creamy complexion. She sits well and is ready to display in your favorite cabinet, gallery of dolls collection or on a favorite cushioned side chair!
She has a kid body with rivet joints and a PARTIAL FACTORY LABEL still on her chest! Her bisque turned shoulder head bears no damage whatsoever and body does have some wear and a tiny bit of leakage which I believe is covered by the stockings and will continue to support for a long time! Her arms are loose and will have to be attached at some point. I stuck a couple of hatpins on one arm to secure it.

The doll is of better quality than the 'average' Kestner doll. Her bisque head is finely manufactured and her face is lovely.
Dress is antique. Antique Victorian lace & antique handmade festoon applique of rosettes and flowers on her SILK SASH. I did not detect any damage on lace but may be a few teeny tiny breaks...not visible and almost impossible to detect! Her matching satin shoes appear original to the dress; also antique. Pantaloons and slip are antique. Original thick human hair wig on pate. Only item replaced is her stockings.
