Antique 27 inch Kister China Head Lady Doll Unusual Hairstyle Kinsbach China Hands

Impressive 27-inch antique German china head by Kister, circa 1860's, on an antique cloth body with wonderfully detailed A. W. Fr. Kister Kinsbach china hands. The head is flesh-toned, with distinctive finely painted features, especially the brows, eyes, and mouth. The nose is narrow and pointed in profile. Her wide blue eyes and slight smile give her a serene, gentle look.

Her rare to find hairstyle features brush strokes at the forehead and heavy braids over the ears. The braids are tucked under the rolled hair at the back neck. Two small braids show in a V shape above the roll. There is a 14 incised inside the shoulder plate.

She wears a silk gown trimmed with wide antique lace and pink pleated silk at the neckline. Antique underwear, black cotton stockings, and antique brown leather boots complete her costume. There was a pimple on her nose, but it was removed by an incredibly talented restorer and is almost undetectable.

This head in a much smaller size is pictured in China's, Dolls for Study and Admiration by Mona Borger, pg 115.

No damage, clean from a non-smoking environment.
