What a beautiful early pale bisque closed mouth Kestner pouty! All original, with hardly any age or use wear, this 19" girl has such a sweet, deep pout, since her bear's ears were chewed off by her puppy! But no sooner had she dried her tears and gotten up, than her shoe button popped off and made her stumbled! What a hard day it’s been! Doesn't she remind you of an XI pouty with the feathered eyebrows, the line between her lips, the correct 8-ball joint body and demure pensive eyes? She's a great one to be sure!
HEAD: Her perfect bisque head is without damage or repairs and marked with an incised size 13 high in back. What lovely artistic decoration she has been blessed with and "oh-so-pale" coloring. In contrast, her expressive brown sleep eyes in original set just pull at your heartstrings! Its nice to find a doll over 100 years old with original pate and blond mohair wig, (also in original set).
BODY: Her correct, early, Kestner original 8-ball jointed body has just one little blooper of a re-glued little finger on her left hand. The stringing is good, so she holds her pose. The finish is original with no repaints. She just had a good cleaning and looks her best after 100 years or more!
CLOTHING: Her darling white frock with attached underskirt has lovely lace and pink ribbons running through inserted lace "beading", and a three piece matching set of under clothing of "windowpane" weave. These also have pretty pink satin ribbons woven through all the beading, all tied in bows. She has also donned her pink silk faille coat and hat ready, for an outing. All together, including what I believe are her original shoes but newer made socks, her clothing is a set of 10 pieces! I will include the single sock she came with that shrank when I laundered everything. Oh dear! One shoe is missing a button.
CONDITION Excellent! No damage or repair on her bisque head, original finish on her body with one finger re-glued, original clothing with newer socks.
Sorry, the bear photo prop is not included.
Guaranteed to bring you a smile, even if she does have a hard time getting over her bear’s ear mishap! She's ready for a comforting hug!
