She has a lovely pale & creamy bisque socket head on a fully jointed original composition and wood body stamped “31”. She has lovely original chocolate brown sleep eyes in their original functioning sleep setting, with painted upper and lower lashes, plus short real upper lashes, feathered brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and all topped off with her beautiful curly blond mohair wig. We'll say it -- her beauty and charm is undeniable!
She comes dressed in a wonderful antique white dress patterned with embroidered white Swiss dots, with a lovely ruffle on the bodice and a flounce at the hem, all edged in lace. The dress is decorated with a small tan thread-covered button at the collar and a small coral pink silk flower on the ruffle. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip, with two tiers of scalloped lace, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and modern black oilcloth shoes. The ensemble is finished off with a coral pink silk bow on the top of her head, held on by a pearly hatpin. Just a darling presentation for this outstanding antique doll! She’s a keeper, alright!

CONDITION: Excellent. Lovely creamy bisque with expert painting of features, very crisp modeling, pleasant color, wonderful alert expression. The bisque head is free of chips, cracks, hairlines, and restoration, but has a few pepper spots, notably on her left eyebrow. Her beautiful original brown sleep eyes are on the original rocker and in fabulous working condition. The eyelashes have been trimmed short. The stamped “31” body is in excellent condition, with only the most minor and expected age wear. One of the Kestner character children molds, the 260 is highly prized for her animated expression! This doll is an outstanding example of the fine quality dolls produced by Kestner!!!
