A circa 1910 19" Kestner alphabet series, letter J, bisque turned shoulder head open mouth Doll with sleep eyes.  The head is marked with a "J" at the crown and on the back shoulder plate it's inscribed "Made in Germany".  This wonderful antique doll is in very nice condition, except that her original pate has been reattached.  The doll's body is kid leather with bisque forearms/hands and sewn leather toes. There is a small hole in the leather at her right forearm, a couple of tiny splits at the hip joints, and one arm had been re-sewn at the shoulder joint.  The doll head has painted eye lashes and brows and her complexion is just radiant. The head has no cracks and it's in wonderful condition along with her four perfectly rounded pearly white teeth.  There are a couple of very small irregularities on her head; note the two dark areas on the forehead and a flea bite on her nose.  We believe these to be factory issues not damage.  The left hand may have a couple small flakes and possibly old damage to the tip of the pointer finger (please see last photo).  The original sleep eyes have some paint missing visible on the closed lid area.  The doll is wearing a modern blond wig in the first and second photos and the sixth photo and she is wearing her original wig that we got with her when we purchased her in the 5th photo.  Both wigs are included in the sale.  The doll stand in NOT included in the sale.  She is dressed completely in the vintage clothing she was wearing when she came to us.  Her outfit includes; shoes, stockings, bloomers, petite coat, cotton shirt and matching jumper, and a burgundy velvet long coat with attached cape and a faux lambs wool scarf.  Her clothing has some tears, stains and other wear but it is all very reasonable considering her age.  This 19" Kestner turned shoulder head doll will make a lovely addition to any antique doll collection.  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRETTY GERMAN DOLL.
