This is a fabulous closed mouth German doll with a rare marking, K12G. She has perfect bisque of the finest quality. She is wearing all antique/vintage clothing and a beautiful antique mohair wig. Her original early composition body has loose balls at the hips and shoulders. Layaway is always an option. Please contact me to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. The quality is extraordinary, with a shiny dewy finish, the sharpest modeling of features, and artistic painting. Her mouth is closed and she has brown sleep eyes. She is wearing a beautiful antique mohair wig that is in excellent condition. She is marked at the rear rim, K12G. Signs of Wear: a couple of insignificant pin-point rubs, and nothing else to report. Factory Imperfections: None.

Body: Her original early composition body is typical of Kestner. It has straight wrists, saggy butt, attached balls at the elbows and knees, and loose balls at the hips and shoulders. Examination with a blacklight reveals a partial light overpaint to some parts including the lower arms. It matches perfectly and is not seen without the blacklight.

Clothes: She is fully dressed in lovely old clothes, hat, and shoes. Her dropped-waist dress is very beautiful, with much lace trim, embroidery strips, pintucks, and entredeaux. The sash is red satin ribbon. Underneath, she wears a half-slip, a chemise that buttons at each shoulder, and lace-trimmed bloomers. She has antique white leather shoes (one toe buckle missing), and nice knee-high stockings. Her woven hat is heavily embellished with red fruits and flowers, and a big red satin ribbon bow. Everything is in excellent aged condition, and everything fits perfectly. International shipping options will vary depending on the country of destination.
