Kley & Hahn commissioned the famous Kestner company, known as The King of Dollmakers, when they produced the darling "Walkure" models, and this beautiful girl is an exceptional example! She has a particularly sweet expression, with a pale bisque tinted with a slight blush. She looks like she is about to jump off the cabinet and play with you! Her face framed by dark brown mohair curls, and her antique body adorned in a lovely antique pale pink cotton dress. This girl will have you waiting by the door for when she’s shipped!

She wears a soft chocolate brown mohair wig in a lovely curled style and she stands 23” tall on her original antique fully-jointed wood and composition body.
She wears a lovely pink cotton antique dress with white Broderie Anglaise and vertical tucking on the bodice, a lace ruffle at the collar and waist, lace trim on the sleeves, and two bands of lace trim on the skirt, with a blue silk ribbon around the waist. Underneath, she wears a white knit undershirt, and a pair of white cotton lace-trimmed pantaloons. On her feet, she wears lacy white socks and black patent shoes. Atop her head is a blue silk bow.
