Kammer & Reinhardt brought to life the darling “Gretchen” doll, one of the most highly-desirable character children dolls that came out of the German antique doll market. Gretchen is easily spotted, with her closed mouth in a pouting expression, and most often painted eyes, all upon a highly-detailed and expressive face. This K&R 114 Gretchen has a rare solid-dome bisque socket head. She is adorned in a cute antique white costume, and has her original blond braided wig atop her head. She’s a real beauty, and is an instant classic within any doll collection, and is bound to elevate your cabinet assortment of dollies a whole class higher. Do not hesitate to snatch up this desirable angel, as Gretchen dolls don’t last long when up for sale!
