If you love Kestners, and you like them big, this darling girl may just be right for you. The height of the doll is just shy of 26". Given her chunky body, she is a big girl--bold and beautiful! HEAD: Her bisque head is in perfect condition, with no factory flaws, damage or restoration. It is marked “K. Made in Germany / 171 14.” The doll has a smooth, flawless bisque head and a sweet shy expression. Her facial features include beautifully feathered brows, large brown sleep eyes, tiny hand painted lower eyelashes and upper original mohair lashes. Her complexion is perfect including her delightful natural blushing. There are red eye corner and nostril dots and an open mouth that shows upper teeth. She has a lovely smile that has a sweet natural appearance. She wears a newer blond human hair wig styled with long soft long curls COSTUME: Dolly wears a simply gorgeous vintage navy blue silk dress with a gorgeous white lace collar and sleeves. The dress has a dropped waist with white lace trim and a silk flower decoration. AND, she wears a made to order straw hat covered with blue silk and decorated with vintage fabric flowers. The dress closes in the back with MOP buttons. Her undergarment is a pair of cotton eyelet bloomers. Her newer stockings and blue German styled shoes complete her outfit. BODY: The doll has a sturdy composition and wood ball jointed body marked “Germany” on the buttocks. Most of the body has its original paint and varnish finish, but the hands have been repainted and there has been a repair to a finger. One of the hip ball joints has been repaired and a dark line of colored residue from the glue remains (shown in photos). It is a sturdy repair and the dark color could be eliminated by painting just that area, but it’s an option not a necessity. The stringing on the legs is somewhat loose, but once the doll is positioned on a display stand she maintains the pose. This beauty and is anxious to find a new home with new friends and a new Mommy.
