Stunning early Kestner 168 bisque head doll all original with box and tag. The doll was made in Germany around 1900. This is an early example of the doll with molded square cut teeth. She is on her original ball jointed composition and wood body with its original finish. The condition of the body is amazing with no crazing or wear on the joints. She did have a broken finger when I got her. The finger has been repaired (see photos). The doll has her original human hair wig.
She is wearing her original Kestner factory dress and slip and her factory original shoes and socks. She has her original factory cardboard tag. The original box is in good condition with its cotton batting to protect the face and a label from Hale Brothers. Hale brothers is an old department store from Sacramento CA. with locations in the San Francisco bay area.
Layaway is possible on this doll. Please contact me for details.

Condition of Doll for Sale

The bisque head has been examined under black light and is perfect with no chips, cracks, rubs or repaint. The wax on the eyes is intact with no damage. The body has its original finish with no cracks or crazing. The clothes are in good shape with no rips or repairs. There are some spots on the dress and yellowing from age with some yellow toning from contact with the cardboard box

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.


The doll may have wear and flaws seen in used dolls. I try to describe significant flaws in my text and show them in picture. Read the text and examine the pictures to be sure you understand the dolls condition. If you have questions please email me.
