SOLD! Thank you M
This little one looks like she’s been so admired but never played with! Small enough to sit in the palm of your hand, and next to the smallest size Hilda that Kestner made, this 10 “ petite treasure is as mint as they come at over 100 years old! It isn’t often we find one in this small size so all her fabulous assets are reflected in her price. She’s just the right size to add to someone special’s Easter Basket this time of year! Just for fun, in case you aren’t normally given an Easter basket, and you decide you cannot pass her by, her woven wood basket with handle is included in this listing as are the little chick and eggs.
There’s not a flaw or damage to her bisque to be found! A collector’s “dream Hilda”, her soft, baby blue sleep eyes smile at you through finely painted lashes. Two little milk glass teeth and a tiny tongue show at her parted and accented rose bud lips. She is painted with skill and just the right amount of color to make her look healthy and happy! Her original blond mohair wig has been lifted to expose her original pate and original eye set. She is fully marked on the back of her head with crisp deep markings that indicate she may have been one of the first out of the mold.
Hilda’s pristine little body has its original paint and surface, the darling blushing on feet, knees, elbows and hands and all accent lines on her fingers and toes. There’s just a tad of wear of the paint at her finger tips. She holds her pose just fine!
Hilda’s christening gown is “to die for”, with lots of tucks and insertion lace. Her bonnet and slip all having matching lace and fit like a dream so must have been made especially for her! Her diaper, booties and crochet covered antique baby bottle complete her ensemble.
