This rare to find doll is a Kestner all bisque measuring just over 9 tall. She has a swivel neck and closed mouth, original brown sleep eyes, multi-stroke brows and beautiful blushing. Arms and legs are peg jointed.
She has a blond wig and cardboard pate, both probably replaced. One hand is fisted in the Kestner manner. She wears a dress of gold faille with lots of lace and a big gold bow at the hips; it comes with a sweet straw hat and a gold crocheted sweater. She has her own trunk in which is another dress of French blue silky material, also with lots of lace and a little enamel bluebird pin. One more dress of tiny windowpane cotton with a little hat all of broderie anglaise.
In addition she has a night dress and hat. Underneath she has what might be her original unders, pantaloons that button to a chemise top, and a half slip. She wears little homemade shoes and socks.
Her trunk also includes a little porcelain lamb and a darling necklace of a French cross, Bible, hanky, sponge and comb. Condition: a fine, short hairline on the back bottom of her neck, and a break of her right arm at the elbow, nicely repaired. A wonderful little girl with all of her treasures; her new owner will be delighted.
