This is a beautiful example of an antique bisque head character faced doll made in the Early 1900's (1907 - 1915). The doll was made in Germany by Kley and Hahn. The Walkure model was made mainly for the US market. The doll has set glass eyes.
The head for the doll was fired by Kestner based on a master design by Kley and Hahn. It is considered to be a "character" face doll which was seen in the early 1900's. Character faces had more lifelike molding but were more expensive to make. By the 1920's they were largely replaced by cheaper "dolly" faced dolls. She is wearing a wonderful wool dress over a white blouse. Under the dress is a full slip and a chemise and bloomers. The underwear is antique. The dress, blouse and shoes are likely latter vintage additions.

Measurements

The Walkure is 22 inches tall

Marks

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 body has its original finish with no cracks, crazing, repairs or repaint. There is some paint wear on the fingertips. The dress and blouse are in good shape with no foxing, stains, rips or repairs. The slip has some holes and a faint yellow stain on the front. The chemise and bloomers are in good shape with a little wear on the lace trim.

Note: For bisque head dolls I use USPS "Special Handling Fragile" service which provides separate handling for packages. The charge is $12.15 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.
