She wears a curly ginger mohair wig. She stands at 21.5” tall on her antique stamped Kestner kidskin body with pin-jointed legs, and wood and composition arms.
She wears a white cotton bebe frock, with a dropped waist. The bodice has a pleated center panel, trimmed with white lace on either side and horizontal flat stripes, closed with self-faced buttons on the left side. The collar and sleeves are also lace-trimmed, with self-faced buttons on the sleeves as well. The skirt is two-tiered and pleated, with both pleats trimmed with lace. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton onesie with lace trim. On her feet are white knit stockings and white faux leather boots, and she wears a white silk bow in her hair.
MARKS: 10 Dep 154 / Made in Germany [back of head, incised, difficult to read]
JDK Germany Crown and Ribbon [torso, stamped, difficult to read]
CONDITION: The bisque head has two faint hairlines on the back. Her glass eyes sit with good alignment in the head, and sleep well when she is leaned back. Her kidskin body minor and expected age wear, and is stamped with the Kestner crown and ribbons mark; it is loose from the plate at the back. Her wood and composition arms retain most of their original shiny finish, with some minor and expected age wear. Her costume is good, with only some minor and expected wear. Overall, she’s a great example of a desirable Kestner 154!
