This lovely Kestner just looks magical. Simply an angel; I usually don't like vintage or newly made dresses, but the presentation on this girl is just otherworldly. Her costume reminds me of a Victorian remaining of the 18th Century pastoral gowns worn by Marie Antoinette near the end of her reign during the enlightenment; with that delightful antique lace trimming, the perfect straw hat with antique flowers and a matched undergarment, she has that top quality presentation that sets her apart. I know she will be one of the crowning gems in any collection she enters, for aside from this wonderful costume, she has perfect bisque, gorgeous amber brown sleep eyes, a MINT body (MINT as in not a single SCRATCH on this immaculate kid, not one pinflake to the perfect and posable bisque hands. Why hesitate when a Letter Kestner this mint is on the table? She is priced to sell and will absolutely enchant her new owner!

She has a wonderful creamy bisque turned shoulder head with large brown sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes with red corner dot, beautiful brown multi-stroke brows, red lips with four upper teeth, and fine sculpting of nose with defined nostrils. Her body, as previously mentioned is near mint with perfect all original kid in excellent condition, free of patches or restorations. Contrast stitching at the collar. Perfect bisque hands with blushed knuckles, red tipped fingers. Pretty blond mohair wig in tight little curls.
She is wearing a gorgeous floor length aqua gown made of a synthetic satin with beautiful antique lace decoration, delicacy of cut and a beautiful overall construction.
