Click To Enlarge

We are offering for your consideration an all original 21” J D Kestner bisque head doll. This little beauty has her original plaster pate and is marked Made in Germany E 168.9 on the back of her head. She has brown glass sleepy eyes, upper and lower painted lashes with multi stroke eyebrows and an open mouth showing her four square cut teeth. The head has no cracks, chips or repairs. There is a small rub on her right cheek, in her right eyebrow, and at the top of her right ear; she also has a very tiny black speck on her chin. Her all original Kestner ball jointed composition and wood body is marked in red “Germany 3369” on her lower right back (see photo #7). The body does have a few condition issues with a crack in her right foot and slight separation at her toes on that foot and a missing left pinky finger (please see the last photo). There is also some flaking and wear at her joints. Her toes and finger nails are outlined with a fine red line. The strings holding the doll together could be a bit tighter but she will stand on her own and is not separating. She is dressed in a short white cotton dress (not original, just a dress that we had and will be including in the sale) and she’s wearing a size 11 Dollspart Dynel light brown Alice wig. The original box for the wig will also be included. This is a very charming antique bisque head Kestner doll that would love to go to a good home!  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS CHARMING ANTIQUE DOLL.
