You won't be able to look away once you open up the box with this little cutie in it! This darling little Sammy baby by Kestner is just begging for love and attention -- look at that face! Those endearing eyes, that chunky-cheeked expression... How can you say no? Standing at 13.5" tall, this little character will fit perfectly in that spot in your collection cabinet which you have been waiting to fill with a bundle of joy! This little one's available on layaway too, so you can take your time to pay!
She has a lovely bisque socket head, with a 9.5” circumference, and a wonderfully modeled character expression, with brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper & lower lashes, thin feathered brows, and an open mouth with two bottom teeth. She stands at 13.5” tall on her five-piece bent-limb baby body, but she prefers to sit. She wears a light brown or dark blond mohair wig, in a short straight style.
She wears a sheer cotton organdy baby gown, with crocheted lace trim at the hem and sleeves, and making up the bodice, which is bordered with pink silk insertion ribbon. Underneath, she wears a white cotton full slip with an eyeletted hem, and a white flannel diaper. On her feet are a pair of white knit booties with pink silk ties at the ankles, and on her head she wears a darling white organdy bonnet, with a lace brim and white silk ties.
Marks: 3 / made in Germany / O / JDK / 211
Condition: Generally Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The modeling is sweet and crisp, with a great expression. The paint is smooth and excellent, with only some very minor rubbing to the cheeks. The stringing on the body is nice and tight. The glass eyes sleep well. The arms have significant wear to the finish that has not been touched up, as well as a chip to one shoulder, there is damage to the toes, and there is a crack in the front of the torso. Otherwise, the wood and composition body retains a large portion of its original shiny finish. The costume is excellent, with minor and expected age wear, mainly to the silk ribbons. Overall, it's a great baby with a great presentation. I know that this delightful little one will be gone soon!
