If you're looking at this Kestner and wondering whether we have a time machine, we completely understand! Her pale bisque glows like the moon, with rosy cheeks and brilliant blue eyes; original golden hair is neatly curled in a bun with two braids framing the sides of her hairdo. Her lovely gown consists of a wonderful beige silk print skirt with a fitted bodice and mutton chop sleeves all trimmed with gathered deep mauve velvet at the waist and collar and cuffs. If you've always longed to hold a piece of untouched doll history in your arms, look no further!
This wonderful Kestner girl has just stepped out of the past and come alive in our present time. I have only ever had a pristine Kestner of this caliber maybe once or twice before. She has a bisque socket head with a bisque shoulderplate. Her sweet original blue sleep eyes function well having painted upper an lower lashes while her lovely brows are multi stroked. She has a slightly open mouth having wide, square-cut teeth. On her head is her original blond human hair wig.
Under her fabulous antique dress described above, she wears an original cream cotton chemise and a pair of original cream cotton pantaloons. Upon her head is a sweet dark velvet chapeau with cloth flowers and a coiled feather. She also wears a gold filled festoon chain with an authentic Victorian carved agate cameo carnelian. Definitely a museum-worthy specimen, this work of art is worth your serious consideration! One look into her blue eyes and I guarantee that you will be smitten!
At 15" she is the perfect size for prime display in your favorite cabinet. This outstanding little lady will enchant all who see her. She is a tip-top investment piece that you will love and adore for years to come. Just imagine holding her and pampering her with more fine clothes and accessories that you can collect for her, or simply showing her off at your next doll club gathering. I can assure you that you will be the envy of all your doll frenemies!
