Darling Tiny German Ball Jointed Doll Body with Unusual Painted Shoes
This is one of my favorite little composition jointed bodies. I believe it is made by Kestner but not positive. I have a larger one marked 169 with a closed mouth & a smaller one with an open mouth marked 189. It is so tiny with great detailing. It measures approx. 4 3/4" tall. It has straight one piece arms & jointed legs & knees. It has a saggy little butt with well defined torso. The unusual trait is the sweet black flat one strap Mary Jane shoes with white painted stockings with scalloped red liner. It is in overall nice condition with some wear, cracking & chipping around the joints. Also a little paint wear on the shoes. The neck opening is approx. 5/8" in diameter. This would make about a 6" doll I believe.
