She has a bisque shoulder head with molded and painted features: brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, brown feathered brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She wears a curly ginger mohair wig. She stands on her antique kidskin body with pin joints, with bisque lower arms and legs.
She wears a white cotton antique dress with long sleeves. The bodice is decorated with vertical inset lace and a lace ruffle at the collar, the hem features lace trim and three tucks, and at waist is a pale pink sash, gapped at the center and terminated with two pale pink silk roses. Underneath, she wears a white cotton full slip and pantaloons, both with lace trim. On her feet are white rayon socks and black oilcloth shoes, and atop her head is a pink silk bow.
MARKS: Dep 7 1/2. 154 [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 glass eyes sit with good alignment in the head, and sleep well when she is leaned back. Her kidskin body has patching at the shoulders, while the rest of the body exhibits only the most minor and typical age wear. Her left hand has a very tiny flake on the index finger, and her bisque arms are in otherwise great condition. Her legs have some chipping to the toes and scuffs on the backs of the calves. Her costume is good, with only some minor and expected wear; the silk roses at the waist of the dress are frayed. Overall, she’s a great example of a desirable Kestner 154!
