This doll is from a smoke free home and has no odors.
What a wonderful character baby. Kestner #211 just speaks to you. This antique German Kestner baby is 16 inches tall. For reference see page #317 in "Doll Values 13th Edition" by Linda Edward. Her small Teddy Bar is included but the chair is not. She has her original mohair wig but it is not in the best of shape. However, just look at her plaster pate. It has the mold number and size of doll impressed into the plaster. Now comes the hard part. Notice the picture of the pate. Of course this is the original pate. She has sleep eyes. So in shipping, the eyes will open and close depending on how the box is handled. So the eye weight inside the head might hit the bisque and break it or maybe crack it. In addition the eyes might fall out and break the eyes and/or the bisque. Therefore, when shipping sleep eyed dolls, you need to stuff the head. But this doll does not have a regular pate. It's pate is the original Kestner plaster pate and to stuff the head, you need to break up the plaster. But when this is done, it ruins the originality of the doll. So I will leave this decision up to the person who buys her. Of course, I will take full cost insurance. But if the buyer elects to leave the plaster pate on, they will agree to assume any damage in shipping. There is some wear on the original body but there is no repainting of pieces off the body as examined by a black light. There is no hairlines or bisque damage. She wears a darling bonnet, under-suit, blue print baby dress and blue crocheted booties. She is just wonderful. From our home to yours.
