This unusual little lady dressed in a unique antique costume. Her sweet expression is enhanced with s slightly turning head, full cheeks and a slightly pouting closed mouth. Her big chocolate brown eyes just draw you in and I must say that the entire effect is simply captivating. On her original kidskin body with perfect bisque lower arms, her sumptuous blond human mohair wig and her singular antique ensemble she bespeaks old world charm in every detail! Closed-mouth Kestners, especially ones with a nice turned-head, are true gems to have in the collection! Additionally, her sensuous closed mouth with a slightly pouting expression is one of the most desirable expressions of this particular Kestner mold. Please don’t let this beauty be the one you regret you didn’t get.

~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. Give us a call at 718-859-0901 for payment options or details!~

She has a perfect bisque shoulder head with original set large brown glass eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, light, feathered brows, closed pouting mouth with a darker center line and a dimpled chin. Overall pale bisque. She wears a fluffy blond mohair hair wig with multitudinous curls. She is on her original, sturdy antique kidskin body standing at 17" tall, with original bisque hands.

She wears a lovely antique costume consisting of a pink denim print pleated skirt with maroon, navy and beige vertical bands in tiny contrasting patterns, fully lined and a grosgrain silk maroon waistband. On top goes a Brown tunic with gathered dropped waist, lace collar trim. A separate bib collar in worn maroon velvet forming a v at the chest with a decorative cream rope element tipped in brown crocheted casement buttons completes the look I think it's reminiscent of a cowgirl design. there is also a cute black bow in her hair. Underneath are a half slip, a pair of pantaloons, cream knit socks and super fine quality two-tone black and brown lace-up boots with high heels.

MARKS: None

CONDITION: Excellent. Her bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. She is an outstanding example with the desirable face unique to closed-mouth Kestners. There are two or three isolated pepper specks that do not detract. Her body is in excellent, sturdy condition with some elbow patches. A pull string crier mechanism in her torso is no longer operational. The costume is good antique condition. Overall, a great doll with original appeal!
