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 is framed by soft blond mohair curls, and her antique body is adorned in a lovely antique white cotton dress. This girl will have you waiting by the door for when she’s shipped!
***Yes, this doll is available on layaway! Feel free to email us or call us at 718-859-0901 for payment details, or an in-hand description of her beauty!***
She has a bisque socket head with brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, brown multi-stroke brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She wears a soft blond mohair wig in a lovely curled style, and she stands 21” tall on her original antique fully-jointed wood and composition body.
She wears a lovely antique white cotton dress decorated with ruffles of lace: three tiers on the skirt, four tiers at the bodice, and a single ruffle trimming each sleeve. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip, and a matching antique combined undershirt and pantaloons, all trimmed in lace matching the dress. On her feet, she wears white knit socks and antique tan-yellow oilcloth shoes with orange silk flowers. Atop her head is a large coral-pink silk bow.
MARKS: Walkure / Germany / 54
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque is excellent, with no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with a just couple of tiny pepper spots and inherent marks, and a few minuscule rubs. She has an overall pleasant face and great modeling of features. The eyes sleep well, with good pupil alignment. The body has minor expected age wear, and her hands and forearms are somewhat scrubbed and very clean. Her all antique costume is in great condition. Overall, a sweet antique doll to fill out any collection, large or small!
