Kley & Hahn was under commission by Kestner when they produced the darling Walkure models, and this beautiful girl is an exceptional example! She has a particularly-sweet expression, with a pale bisque tinted with a slight blush. She looks like she is about to jump off the cabinet and play with you! Her face framed by blond curls, and her antique body adorned in a lovely antique dress, this girl will have you waiting by the door for when she’s shipped!
*Yes, this doll is available on layaway! Feel free to email us or call us at 718-859-0901 for payment details, or an in-hand description of her beauty!*

MARKS: Walkure Germany
HEINRICH HANDWERCK [Back of torso]
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. Antique Handwerck body has the all original finish, which is a great find. The right ring finger has been rebuilt, and her right big toe has been chipped. Some extremely minor flaking here and there, but overall, the body is great with the shiny original finish. The left hand is a slightly-smaller, although well-fitting replacement.
