She has a bisque socket head with expert modeling and crisp detailing. Blue glass sleep eyes, framed by painted lower lashes, real upper lashes, and feathered brown flyaway brows. She has an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin. She wears a blond mohair wig, with short tight curls. She is on her original wood & composition body, with its all original finish, and the original "Germany" mark in the back (see photos). The look is excellent; this girl really has stood up to the test of time, and will look fabulous in a collection cabinet. She stands at 22.5" tall.
She is adorned in her all-original factory chemise, in a white muslin, with lace trim and pink embroidery trimming. Pink bow on the front has been added. Pale pink bow in hair, and one around the waist. White cotton antique half slip and white cotton antique pantaloons, both with button closure. White cotton knit socks and cream shoes.
MARKS : G made in 11 Germany 171 [HEAD]
GERMANY 3 1/2 [BODY]
CONDITION: Excellent. Her bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. She has lovely smooth Kestner quality bisque with subtle color, fine painting of features, deep and crisp modeling of sweet dolly face. Glass eyes sparkle, sleep well, and have nice pupil alignment. Original body has its all original peachy and glossy finish, and is in great condition, with visible mark on the back of the torso. Seems to be some very minor touchup to the neck socket area of the body. Costume is good, especially for its age. A beautiful girl!
