12 Rare Antique German Bisque Doll Rose O'Neill Glass Eye Kewpie Kestner
12 EXTREMELY RARE ROSE O'NEILL BISQUE KEWPIE GOOGLIE DOLL SIGNED ON THE FOOT - MADE BY J. Around 30 years ago, I bought a pair of these amazing dolls, along with the Kestner Hilda that I have listed, from the estate of a lady whose parents bought them at some kind of a display of dolls in the early 1900's - these are the clothes I had on her, and the pin is an antique one from Saturday Chicago American - the neck to the dress is a little small, but it just looks too cute on her, and I've just lowered the price. The most amazing part is that Rose O'Neill signed both of them "O'Neill" on a foot with an ink pen (see pics). I've been doing this for 44 years, and I have seen this doll sell in excess of 14K, but I have never seen one signed by O'Neill.
The only thing I have to tell you about condition of this little doll is that there is some soot from the kiln in the left side seam of her head. Here's your chance (maybe the only one) to own this rare doll. It would be a key piece to any collection, or the most amazing gift ever and Christmas is coming. Don't miss out on this one.
