Today we are offering this lovely 32" antique Kestner 196 with FUR EYEBROWS!
She has pretty dark blue eyes that open and close and a sweet expression on her face. Her wig is a deep brunette made of human hair. She has no hairlines or cracks. She does have a small flake missing from her bisque just below the right eyebrow. Nothing extensive, just work mentioning. She has perfectly painted open mouth with four porcelain teeth. She is marked at the back of her head "Made in Germany 16 1/2" with the number 196.
She is costumed in a LOVELY WHITE ANTIQUE DRESS with great detailing consisting of lace trim and embroidered floral decoration. She wears a pair of white nylon tights and a darling pair of antique child's black side button shoes. Her bonnet is an antique and looks wonderful on her.
Her body is appears to have been repainted. She does have a repair to her lower left leg, just below the knee. All fingers and toes are present, however the left index finger has been reattached/rebuilt.
This is a beautiful doll and would make a super addition to any antique doll collection.
