She has a bisque solid dome head with a 9” circumference, with big brown glass set eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, airbrushed brows, an open-closed mouth, and molded and painted hair. She stands at 11” on her antique five-piece baby body, though she would prefer to sit- or lay in a crib!
She wears an antique white cotton baby gown, with pin tucks on the bodice and pink featherstitching at the hem and waist. Underneath, she wears a white cotton full slip with a pin-tucked bodice and an eyelet lace hem, and a pair of antique white cotton baby panties. On her feet are a pair of pink crocheted booties, and on her head is a pink crocheted bonnet. Held snug in her arms is her own darling little cloth doll, with a face and shoes printed on her waffle-knit body, braided blond thread hair tied in blue bows, and clad in a petite pink floral cotton dress with a white apron.
MARKS: JDK / made in 7 Germany [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. The head has a dark mold line and some very faint peppering, which is inherent. Her glass eyes sit with good alignment in the head. Her composition body is in great condition, with original finish and varnish, with sturdy stringing, with only the most minor and typical age wear. Her costume is good, with only some minor and expected wear. Overall, she’s a great example of a desirable Kestner character baby!
