Awwwe! Have you ever seen a sweeter face? I think not!. Her darling sad expression is enhanced with s slightly turning head, full cheeks and a slightly pouting closed mouth. Her big beautiful blue eyes just draw you in and I must say that the entire effect is simply mesmerizing. On her original kidskin body with perfect bisque lower arms, her sumptuous blond 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 original blue glass eyes (now fixed), 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 and modern costume consisting of an antique pink cotton pinafore dress with winged sleeve caps, under which goes a fitted hot pink modern blouse with lace trim. She has a superb set of antique underwear (save her pantaloons which are more recent), antique cotton knit socks and fabulous reproduction cream leather Jumeau style shoes with pink rosettes. On her head is a sweet matching pink hair bow.
MARKS: None are visible
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. What a superb little treasure she is!
