Delightful 22" Strobel & Wilken Antique Doll on Outstanding Jubilee Kid Body!
While a slightly lesser-known doll manufacturer, the Strobel & Wilken dolls company began in 1864 when they started to produce and distribute German bisque-head dollies. This particular girl is a real charmer, with a cute presentation, pristine bisque head, and a GORGEOUS kid body in outstanding condition, with original chest stamp! She has exceptional composition arms and legs, with outstanding original finish in MINT shape, which is a really desirable trait among the kidskin dollies. She's dressed in a sweet costume that will ll make her a desirable addition to any collection cabinet, but her real value lies in her condition, which is such a hard thing to find in these dolls of such age! Add this beauty to your collection now!
