Here I have to offer a fabulous Kestner #143. She is 18" inches tall on her Original ball-jointed body signed in red "Excelsior Germany 2." Her face is just adorable with peaches and cream complexion. She has big brown sleep eyes. Her mouth is open with 2 upper teeth, her original paper tongue & extra shading with lines on her upper & lower lips. She has wonderfully feathered eyebrows that are flat & glossy, so typical of the Kestner dolls. Her wig has been replaced, but she still has her Original plaster pate that Kestner used for all their dolls. She has been appropriately redressed in fine antique cotton and lace. She is wearing Antique German doll shoes. On the back of her neck she is marked "B Made in Germany 11, 143." This wonderful doll has no hairlines, chips, cracks, and is damage free. The only flaw is one middle finger on one hand if off. This desirable Kestner 143 is so sweet looking and would be an asset to any doll collection.
