This charming little doll is only 9 ½” tall. Her head is incised “Made in Germany, 169” and is attributed to the Kestner Doll Firm. She is a very special little doll because she has a closed mouth and is on an early straight wrist body. Her body has no repaint and no repairs but there is a tiny chip on the end of her right thumb and a surface paint chip at her shoulder joint (pictured). She has full lips and her mouth is closed. Her open and close brown eyes are wide and alert. They have painted upper and lower lashes and feathered dark brows. Her cheeks are blushed but there is a tiny rub on her right cheek and a tiny rub on her upper lip. Behind her right ear is an old hairline but it does not extend into the face. It stops at the seam (pictured). In spite of her flaw, she is still a very desirable small size closed mouth character. She wears a full slip with pantaloons and a full, pale blue dress with matching hat and human hair wig.
