A lady must never travel without her toilet articles! One never knows when a stop at an inn or hotel will catch her unawares, and she must be ready to freshen up. Fortunately, this dear German all-bisque is quite equal to the task, still strapped securely into her original basket with her tiny bathing accessories, hat, and delicate capelet. Mademoiselle herself is quite a beauty, with ice-blue eyes, locks of pale gold, and a charming blue and white dress. This incredible set is almost entirely original- such a grand little miss would never let any of her effects go! What is this sweet little surprise? Hidden in a delectable wicker basket with decorative wefts and fancy edging, the lucky, curious antique lover will be delighted to find the cutest little antique Kestner all bisque with a full original set of goodies- just as she was presented to her first owner, over 100 years ago. This delicious little presentation box is ready for display, chock full of antique doll house treasures, and all original to the pristine presentation. It is so hard to find these early presentation boxes these days... they truly are scarce- so when we came across this sweet little girl, we just couldn't say no to her! The fun and delightful ensemble is meant so that the little mignonette can bathe--what a delightful interactive treat. Inside, we find:
~One beautiful kestner all bisque with blue socks and brown shoes in her original organdy dress with blue lace trimming and blue glass eyes, a blond wig, and sweet expression. We have fully examined her as far as the presentation will allow without destruction, she appears to be free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration of any kind.
~A matching silk trimmed hat and net lace over silk capelet for her to wear (never removed, still sewn in!
~One French perfume bottle which reads 'Violettes De France A.Picard Paris
~Two other french perfume bottles in minature dollhouse size.
~One bar of soap titled "Mimosa" Doll House Sized
~One Creme A Raser 'Lacma" Doll House Sized
~One antique sponge.
Measurements: The box is 5" by 5" by 2", the doll measures 3.5"
Condition: She is in overall excellent condition, the box is MINT, everything is present save one small article that was not with the piece when we received it. Every piece is not just attached with the blue band, it is also sewn in to the box, as it originally came out of the factory. A later book was added by a loving owner. I am sure that she will be a stellar addition to any collection!
