Very pretty 24-inch bisque socket head Kestner child doll with brown sleep eyes, painted lashes, feathered brows, open mouth with teeth, marked “J Made In Germany 13”. Smooth bisque has good color, no visible cracks or repairs. One eye is not as reflective as the other. There is a paint skip above 1 ear (see photos). Replaced blond synthetic wig over plaster pate, composition ball-jointed body stamped in red “Max Handwerck Made in Germany”. Body has been restrung; joints move easily and pose well. Composition shows expected wear, old finish repair visible on back of one calf. Small chip on one hip joint. Yellowing of finish on hands.
This doll came to me with newish replaced clothing. I am happy to pass this along to you with purchase if you wish. Please indicate this in “Notes to Seller” when purchasing. Thank you.
