This girl is a real beauty with a striking presentation that will make her mark in any display. Manufactured by the esteemed Kestner in the 154 mold, this sweet girl will be a treasured example in your collection. She has a great, colorful presence that just brings life to the cabinet! She has a bisque shoulder head, with great modeling of features: an open mouth with four upper teeth, dimpled chin, feathered and molded dark brown brows, and brown glass sleep eyes, with painted lashes and real upper lashes. She wears a sweet ginger mohair wig in short, tight curls. She stands at 21.5" tall, on her original kidskin body, with the original chest stamp mark (see photo). She has pin-jointed elbows, thighs, and knees, and bisque lower arms.
She is adorned in a lush red dress with print and black lace trim. Underneath goes a matching set of antique underwear: a white cotton full slip, half slip, and pantaloons, all with lovely broderie anglaise. White knit socks and black oilcloth shoes clad her feet. Black silk ribbons tie around her waist and top her hair in a bow.

MARKS: Dep. 10. 154.
CONDITION: Generally excellent. Lovely creamy bisque with expert painting of features, very crisp modeling, pleasant color, lovely large eyes and a sweet expression. The head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Her body is overall rather good, with only a few things here and here: the tops/shoulders of both arms have had some minor reinforcement, and there is some staining to the right thigh. Her right thumb has been chipped. Overall, though, the body is good, with no major patchjobs or leakage. A great girl.
