This highly desirable bisque headed doll was made by the famed German doll making firm JD Kestner. It is model 171 which came in several sizes, of which we believe this is the largest, made c. 1900. Although I measure it nearly 30 inches, some give its height as 28-30 inches. With its considerable height, we consider it a natural for certain decorating themes and scenarios - and its great age is no liability. Additional pluses are the clothes period appropriate or sympathetic with the character of the doll. The hair has been replaced. The doll has a bisque head with jointed composition body. Its brown eyes close - another quality feature of this fine doll. The back of the head is marked Made in Germany along with JDK marks. Your package will include the doll, clothes, and stand. Dimensions are for clothed display. The doll itself has slightly smaller dimensions. Dimensions: 12" w, 9" d, 30" h The clothing is discolored and/or faded in places. The hair has been replaced and is synthetic.
