Adorable and very desirable Kestner character #143 -8.5" with 7 piece body circa 1904. She is all the nicer for a collector with her antique trunk and 3 outfits. She has perfect bisque and has been fully inspected with multiple light sources and jewelers loop. There is no damage, chips, repairs or rubs. The facial painting is very fine and the bisque is smooth without rubs or kiln specks. Marked - "Made in Germany, 143" on the back of her head. The little Kestner body is very nice with only a small area of repaint on the tops of both shoulders done when her arms were re-strung. She has her original pate and wig - clean, thick, blonde mohair in a page set. The pretty blue eyes open and close easily. The eyes are in original setting with old minor reinforcement on plaster pivots. Eye lid wax is intact both eyes. She has three outfits - 1. antique white long dress(maybe original), 2. Newer and finely made long dress in antique peach voile with matching bonnet, and 3. Drop waist dress in light blue polka dots. She has wonderful tiny, antique shoes- in clean white leather with buckles, also most likely original. Socks are knee high, antique knitted to the knee. Of course there is mommy made underclothes. Her trunk is just the right size for everything but with plenty of room for additions to her wardrobe. Please check and enlarge all photos. Ask questions as needed. She will fit in the palm of your hand. Shipping fee listed is for US shipping only. What a sweet little one. Thank you.
