She has a bisque shoulder head with molded and painted features: brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, brown feathered brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She wears a fluffy blond mohair wig with curls cascading down her shoulders. She stands at 28” on her antique kidskin body with pin joints, with bisque lower arms.
She wears a white cotton antique dress with long sleeves. The waist and collar are smocked; the waist has a wide diamond pattern, and the collar is tighter, with pink corded stripes and white dots. Both the collar and the sleeves are trimmed with pink scalloping, and there is a white cotton sash attached to the sides of the dress at the waist. Underneath, she wears a white cotton full slip with a scalloped hem, and a pair of pink cotton pantaloons with a woven-in abstract star pattern and lace trim. On her feet are white knit socks with an open diamond pattern and pale pink leather shoes with pink silk pom poms. On her head is a pink silk bow, and she wears a string of faux pearls around her neck.
MARKS: Dep 154. 14. [back of head, incised]
13 [left arm, incised]
11 [right arm, 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 right arm has been reattached, and is extremely delicate and should not be excessively manipulated. The rest of the body exhibits only the most minor and typical age wear, with some discoloration to the kidskin on her left arm. Her bisque arms are in excellent condition. Her costume is good, with only some minor and expected wear. Overall, she’s a great example of a desirable Kestner 154!
