The King of Dollmakers has not let us down with this beautiful closed-mouth girl, with sparkling blue eyes that are sure to lure you in to appreciate her chunky, slightly-pouty expression. On her original kidskin body with bisque arms, and adorned in a gorgeous white cotton dress with eyelet lace and embroidery, she is the doll who, once she's set up in your cabinet, you'll keep coming back to.

Plus, if you don't want to drop all the money down at once, we do offer liberal layaway plans, so you can secure this girl by paying for her in increments. Any lover of the King of Dollmakers will swoon for this closed-mouth girl.

Bisque shoulder head with set blue eyes, painted lashes and thinly feathered brows. A lovely closed mouth with shading accents and a dimpled chin, with a slight pout to the expression. She wears a blond mohair curly wig. She is on her original kidskin body standing at 18" tall, with original bisque hands. She wears a lovely costume: a white cotton layered dress, vintage, with delicate embroidery and lace decoration and trim that makes her alluring and attractive wherever she is. Underneath she wears a white cotton antique half slip and pantaloons, with lace socks and cream old shoes.
CONDITION: Generally excellent. Her bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, and the eyes are great with no fissures. She is a great example of the desirable face unique to closed mouth Kestners. Her body has some moderate age wear and patchwork; the left leg has been reinforced at the knee. See photos for clear images of the body. Overall, this is a beautiful girl!
