This darling girl is all you need! She’s a delightful Kestner 171, with a face that is bound to please. We’ve come to call her “Daisy’s sister”, due to the proper 171 mold number, the accurate 18” height, and that unique face that makes Daisy so recognizable -- however, she does have brown eyes, while it’s said by some that Daisy had only blue eyes. Still, this girl has all of the charm, with a wonderfully-modeled bisque head, on a near-pristine stamped body, and is adorned in a lovely antique dress that will make you smile. With a face like that, how can you say no?

She has a bisque socket head, with a nice pale complexion and cute dolly features. Brown glass sleep eyes, with painted lower lashes, real upper lashes, with feathered flyaway brows. She has an open mouth, with four upper teeth. She is on her original wood & composition body, fully-jointed, with jointed wrists. Body has the pristine original finish. She stands at 18” tall. She wears a golden blond mohair wig in soft curls.
She wears a blue silk bow in her hair, along with an antique white cotton dress with lace trim, open embroidery, and insertion lace, along with many rows of tucking -- wow! Underneath she wears her original white cotton antique full slip, sleeveless, with an antique white cotton half slip with insertion lace, antique pantaloons with open embroidery trim, and her original pair of antique blue socks with antique blue cloth shoes. A blue ribbon goes around her waist.

CONDITION: Excellent. Nice quality bisque with expert painting of features, very crisp modeling, pleasant color, lovely large original sleep eyes and a sweet expression. The head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice pale complexion, and expert painting of features. The body is original, and maintains the original finish, with back stamp, with good sturdy stringing for posing. Hands are great.
