Thank You JM Superb 17" Early 143 Mold Kestner Girl In Delightful Antique Costume On Excelsior Body
We just LOVE beautiful Kestners- and this stellar girl with some of the nicest facial painting I've ever seen is certainly a keystone example of the excellence in this mold. With all of the must-have features for a pristine example like HUGE, working sleep eyes, a stamped EXCELSIOR body, creamy bisque and long, luscious curls that match her brows, I know that a sweetheart of this caliber will not be here long. What an extraordinary little lady in a great costume; I am sure her new parent will be very smitten with her.
~This beautiful Kestner Character is available on layaway. Take your time to pay for her. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 718.859.0901 to hear an in hand description of her fabulous condition, or to discuss layaway terms.~
She has a bisque socket head on a fully jointed composition and wood body with jointed wrists signed Excelsior. Big blue sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke brows, open mouth with two upper square teeth, pretty auburn French human hair wig. Extremely high sculpting; beautiful coloring, just a precious little lady!
Dressed in a wonderful antique white cotton dress (in moderate condition, stain under apron) with lace around the collar and cuffs, and a FABULOUS little blue checkered apron with a white cross-stitched hem in a repeating diamond pattern. Underneath she has a voluminous full slip with factory trim and very sweet antique pantaloons with lace trimming. She is completed with black and white schoolgirl shoes and a very cute pair of socks. White bow in her gorgeous french human-hair wig!
MARKS: made in
G Germany 11
CONDITION: Excellent, save a rebuilt small chip on neck which is deep down in the socket and only visible on the inside in the head. Without this little imperfection, we'd be asking $1700 for her! Otherwise she has a most excellent quality bisque with expert painting of features, (take a good look at the glossed highlights of the lips) very crisp and deep modeling of character features with original large blue sleep eyes. The original Kestner body in excellent original finish condition with hardly any wear except for minor typical wear to the joints. This adorable petite Kestner character is one of the most appealing of all the Kestner models, and she has all of the value points that serious collectors consider. From her original body and costume, to beautiful bisque and high chracter face, she is a grade A doll.
