One of the most beautiful 160 Kestners I have ever seen, this lovely lady is simply a vision with her huge blue eyes and scarlet locks. With rare features like a MINT body with the original crier and the most delightful expression, she is a treasure. Her presentation is unparalleled for girls of her size, and she is just one of those dolls who will raise the quality of your collection. With exceptional facial modeling and expert painting, capturing a wonderfully sweet expression, I am sure that she will not be here long. She's dressed in a lovely silk costume too, with a soft mohair wig that gives her that unique look. Plus, when a doll as beautiful as she is available on layaway, there's something so irresistible about adding her to your collection... Make her yours -- give us a call ASAP, and have us put your name on her and a 'Sale Pending' sign on her page here. If you don't, someone else certainly will soon...

CONDITION: Excellent. Bisque is excellent, with no hairlines cracks, chips or restoration. An overall pleasant face and great modeling of features. The eyes sleep well. Original body has the BEAUTIFUL all original finish, which is a great find, and its super glossy and smooth to the touch. Cryer is no longer functional. She bears the original "GERMANY 1" stamp on the lower back, while her hands are in particularly great condition, with no missing fingers or pesky chipping. The feet are great too, and look nearly untouched by the test of time. She does have the most minor of age wear here and there, but the original glossy finish is still present, and she really holds up in terms of presentation. Truly, this girl is a fabulous find, and beautiful to behold. You would be hard-pressed to find a better Kestner 160 right now!
