Description of Doll for Sale
I am pleased to have a beautiful example of a Kestner 171 bisque head doll made in Germany in the early 1900's. This is the same mold that Kestner used for the 18 Daisy that was distributed by the ladies Home Journal magazine in 1911. At 22 inches she is a little bigger than Daisy but still has the wonderful little girl look to her. She is on a ball jointed composition body with it's original factory finish. She has antique underwear and a vintage replacement dress that looks good on her. She is wearing a nice replacement human hair wig and replacement oilcloth shoes.
The doll is 22 inches tall
Condition of Doll for Sale
The bisque head is perfect with no chips, cracks, rubs or repaint. The wax on the eyes is intact but it has darkened some. The body has its original finish with no cracks or crazing. There is a partial repair and repaint to the little finger of one hand. The clothes are in good shape with no foxing, stains, rips or repairs.
Note: For bisque head dolls I use USPS "Special Handling Fragile" service which provides separate handling for packages. The charge is $11.15 which is added to the insurance charge in the Ruby Lane shipping summary. I feel this extra charge is appropriate to insure trouble free shipping of your fragile purchases.
