This 12 ½ inch tall doll, circa the early 20th century, has a bisque socket head and a bent limb composition baby body. The doll was manufactured, in Germany, by Kestner. The bisque head has blue glass sleep eyes and an open mouth with two upper teeth. The baby also has an antique brunette mohair wig. The back of the head is incised, “made in//Germany.//J.D.K.//257. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The original composition body retains the original finish with original finger and toe painting on the hands and feet. The doll wears wonderful early antique white cotton baby clothing with a great early lace bonnet. I am offering this doll at a fabulous price for a discriminating collector.
