This is a gorgeous example of Kestner 214. She has flawless bisque, and she retains her incredible original wig. Her original body is in excellent condition. She wears a sweet antique dress, shoes and hat. Layaway is always an option but please contact me before purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no cracks, chips or hairlines. The condition is mint with no signs of wear, and the bisque is high quality and flawless. She has blue sleep eyes with intact original eyelid wax and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She wears an exceptional blond mohair wig that is likely original. She is marked: Made in Germany / JDK / 214. She has a letter and number marking that may be H 12.

Body: Her original Kestner body is in excellent aged condition with almost no wear at all. One lower arm has a thin crack, but it is stable. The finish is entirely original.

Clothes: She is fully dressed in a sweet German costume. Her antique dress is delicate and sheer, with lace inset on the bodice and around the skirt. It is sashed at the waist with wide ribbon that forms a big bow at the side. Underneath, she wears a full slip and pantaloons that I believe are made of old fabrics. She has blue knit stockings and antique white leather shoes. These are fragile, so I will not remove them. Finally, she wears a little antique cap of sheer cotton and lace.
