This one will steal your heart. She is precious! Very adorable approx. 12 1/2" Kestner Baby Jean doll. She is only 8 1/2" inches tall when seated. She has the solid dome bisque head with molded and airbrushed hair, feathered brows, painted upper and lower lashes, beautiful blue sleep eyes (with all the lid wax intact), accented eye corners and nostrils, an open mouth with lined and painted lips, two upper teeth and fat rosy cheeks (small cheek rub). No hairlines or chips. Her neck is incised J.D.K. made in germany with the number 10 for the circumference of her sweet little head. The creamy bisque shows the high quality the Kestner character dolls are known for.
Her darling blue glass eyes have perfect wax and open and close as they should. The pupils are slightly off center and may need a little adjustment to make them perfect. This is beyond my expertise and besides, She is just as sweet as can be just like she is and I wouldn't change a thing.
Her original jointed composition baby body is in very good condition and retains the factory finish. The right pinky finger is partly missing and the pointing finger on the same hand has a little paint loss. There is a small blemish on one arm.
She comes with her factory original lace trimmed sleeveless white cotton dress, matching bonnet and slip. The dress has lace around the arms and lace around the large collar. The matching slip is trimmed with lace at the hem and the matching bonnet has three rows of lace around the brim and it retains the original silk ribbon ties. It wraps her face so sweetly like a halo on a cherub! I also added some sweet old dresses from that fit her and looked so cute that I decided she needed to keep them to have a wardrobe. There is a darling light pink dress with a blue flower print with rick rack trim around the neck, sleeves and on the bodice, and a second vintage darker pink dress with a flower print and organdy collar ( it has a few small rust color spots). Both or her extra dresses look adorable on her but just a tad snug on her chubby body. She also has a tiny antique bib with silk ties that has these words embroidered on it, "Stop little Drop" - very cute (found a little hole on the bib). Her pink and white vintage striped socks are a pretty compliment to all of her little outfits.
This one is very hard to find in this tiny size. She's A darling cabinet size Baby Jean doll - I hope you love her as much as I do!
