This 23 inch tall doll has a 5 ¼ inch china head with a covered wagon hairstyle. The body is antique cloth with leather lower arms. The head was manufactured in Germany by the A.W. Fr. Kister Company. The head is in excellent condition with a pink tint and no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is a slight variation in color on the tip on the nose but this must have happened in the manufacture and is not later damage. The back of the head has the typical wear to the black paint of the covered wagon hairstyle curls. Miss Kister wears an antique print dress with antique cotton underclothing. She also has knit socks and newer, but appropriate, leather shoes. This particular mold has always been one of my favorites. The head looks like a young girl instead of an older woman.
