She stands at 13” tall, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, thick flat brown brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth. She’s on her original antique wood and composition body, fully jointed and signed Germany. She wears a ginger red mohair wig in a short, curly style.
She is dressed in an antique blue and white cotton plaid long-sleeved dress with dropped waist, with a cute white bonnet with blue striped trim. Underneath goes a white cotton antique full slip and matching pantaloons. Simple white socks and pale lavender leather French style shoes with rosettes adorn her feet.
MARKS: Made in Germany 167 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top quality modeling and painting of features. Her costume is in great shape, with hardly any wear. The body is in very fine original finish condition however the left leg is a replacement Kestner leg of the same period and showing more wear. While the thigh is longer, the legs are the same length due to an elongated ball joint on the other leg that fits well and doesn’t alter her standing height. Overall it is not noticeable when the doll is dressed. The stringing is tight and sturdy, allowing her to pose easily. Overall, this is a little fabulous doll, bound to be gone soon!
