This is a most unusual and adorable Googly. She was made in Germany by Kestner and is marked on the back of her head: 189., 2/0. The marks are a little hard to read because there is a repaired break that runs through them (photo 8).
The repair is on the left side in the back and runs through the ear and back up through the identification marks. It's completely covered by the wig.
There is also a hairline that runs from the left eye to the ear. This one is nearly invisible in actual size. Her porcelain face is beautiful and undamaged with reset side glance eyes and a watermelon mouth.
There is a repaired crack on the left elbow of her porcelain arm. What's unique about this doll is that she's on her original Tout En Bois (doll of wood) body.
Her head and arms are porcelain but her body and legs are wood. This wooden body has oxidized with age and is now very dark on the inside. These wooden dolls and parts were made in Germany and France ca.The German ones were made in Sonneberg. A block of wood would be machined out on the inside and the head or torso was then hand carved and painted. This body was custom made for the porcelain parts, the joints fit perfectly. This is a very rare original combination.
Not only is the doll all original, all of her clothing is also. She wears a "onesy" black dress with attached panties.
Over the panties she wears crocheted red and black leggings. She has a red and black coat that's buttoned with tiny black glass buttons and a matching hat.
She has her original human hair wig that is attached to a tiny plaster pate. The wig and pate are not attached to her head but fit her well and stay in place for display.Her original clothing is all in red and black, her painted red socks and black painted shoes was no accident. This is a very special original doll thats managed to survive in wonderful condition. Good for her and good for the next owner! The doll stand is not included. Thank you for looking at my sale.
