ALL ORIGINAL - IN MINTY CONDITION! Antique Doll - Made in Germany c. Kestner Composition Body Stamped: Excelsior D. For the discriminating collector, here is an amazing all-original JDK child doll in absolutely minty condition.This doll looks like she stepped out of a time capsule. She's an untouched, virtually all original 20 Kestner 129 -- early in their Alphabet Series -- with unopened pate. As shown in the photo... It has NEVER been opened since the factory. Im not sure whether the socks, shoes, and hat are original.
But everything else is factory-original. She has original eye wax and original wig. The wig is in wonderful condition, full and curly.It is attached to the pate with some spots of mild adhesive. And, typical of these early Kestners, she does not have pierced ears.
Her white dress had tiny bits of restoration work to keep it in minty condition. She has her 3-piece undergarment set as well. She is a true marvel to have survived in this condition.Look carefully at the pictures; I have never found a nicer Kestner, condition-wise. Im sure you'll agree! Beautiful antique condition -- from a non-smoking environment. No issues found with the bisque after careful examination, other than the (curiously matching) single kiln speck on either cheek, and 2 wig pulls in front.
As mentioned, her original white dress has had some gentle restoration work, such as an inner sleeve patch (which can be seen from the front on close examination). It also has some age toning spots and tiny holes in back, as pictured.The undergarment, likewise, has some tiny age holes. As for the Excelsior composition body, it is immaculate, with no cracks, restoration, chips, or crazing... Only wear at the hip joints as shown. I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. Provided it's rated the same (or faster) than the service you chose. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, or U. Message me to see whether there may be a cheaper alternative using Priority Post -- depending on the size and value of your parcel.
And provided the items can travel safely in the same box. (opens in a separate window/tab)... Where you'll find more top-quality antiques/collectibles/artwork/dolls/and more!
Significantly not as described: A. What was stated in the listing. As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they're doing. And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective.
BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition. There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls.
