SOLD ON LAYAWAY
This outstanding example of a Covered Wagon China doll is by Kestner. She has a perfect shoulder-head with a deep pink tint. Her antique cloth body has leather arms and attached leather boots. Her all-antique clothing includes a nice antique dress, and her three-piece matched set of unders is likely original. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:
Head: Her glazed porcelain shoulder-head is perfect with no damage. She has a deep pink skin tone, and she is beautifully painted in the Kestner style. Her hair style is referred to by collectors as Covered Wagon. She has a white center part and rows of short curls surrounding her head and covering her ears. Examination: There is really nothing to report. She is extraordinary!
Body: Her antique cloth body has leather arms, attached striped stockings and attached blue leather boots with tassels and faux lacings. It is a nice sturdy body with no patching or leaking and just normal age wear. She has a heavy butt that helps her to sit well.
Clothes: She wears an antique dress of dotted white cotton with lace-trimmed ruffles at the neck and hem. It has the expected light age wear and displays perfectly. Underneath, she wears a three-piece set of matched antique unders that appear to be original. These fit like a glove and are in excellent aged condition.
