The wax eyelids were repainted at some point. There is also some paint or reinforcement of the plaster areas inside the head. The sleep eyes function well. The head measures approximately 7 1/2 tall from the top of the head to the bottom of the neck opening, head circumference is slightly over 15. Neck circumference is about 7 1/2.
I think it would need a 23-24 composition body with the neck diameter of the torso about 2 3/8 - 2 1/2. Should make about a 29 -30 doll complete with body. The head weighs 1 lb.Please see my other listings for additional doll items! BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE WALKURE KESTNER GERMAN BISQUE DOLL HEAD BLUE SLEEP EYES" is in sale since Thursday, April 9, 2020.
