This 25 inch tall doll, circa the early 1860s, has a 7 inch tall china shoulder head with a modified flat top hairstyle. The doll head was manufactured in Germany by the Kestner & Company Porcelain Factory. She has an antique cloth body with attached leather boots and lower arms. The cotton body appears to be in good condition with the torso covered in tan Stockinette fabric for reinforcement. The early pressed glazed porcelain head is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. I always am drawn to this particular Kestner china because she seems to be an older woman rather than a young child. The doll, wearing antique white cotton pantaloons and a petticoat, is ready to be dressed by her new owner and will be a fabulous doll with some love in her new home.
