She is a very pretty Simon and Halbig doll mold 1079 size 9, measuring almost 22 in height. Beautiful original set rocker blue glass eyes, nicely rendered hand painted features with rosy cheeks and lips with tiny teeth, feathered eye brown and lashes. She is dressed in lovely silky antique style dress that have Juliette sleeves with tulle over lace at the bodice and sleeves, the attached faux vest and edges of the top of the sleeves have a row of tiny white lace edging. The material is doubled so it’s nice an thick and displays nicely. Under her dress she wears vintage crisp white lace slip with old fashioned pantaloons, and vintage light pink shoes with little buckles and cream color socks. A soft ringlet light bown wig completes her look but it’s not glued down so it’s easy to replace. She is in good antique condition without any cracks to her bisque, the replacement pate is glued on tight but I could not see any hairlines when looking with a flash light. A very small bit off on one earring hole, some typical wear to the body with some small chipping around the neck line in the front, and apparently some little girl painted her fingernails red at some point : Her stringing is fine, the legs are not loose but not as tight as the head and arms. Please enlarge photos for more details of this sweet German bebe who would make a wonderful antique doll for any collector or as a great beginner girl.

Adorable 8.5 Kestner Wrestler With Rare Blue Boots All Bisque Doll Circa 1895. What can I say? If you look for cream of the crop, tip of the top dolls, and you have a fondness for all bisques, look no further, because this larger Kestner all bisque is just one of the finest examples you’ll come across. She’s everything that all bisque collectors look for in a wrestler from her original brown sleep eyes, wonderful little closed pouting mouth, to those muscular legs that define the wrestler genre of all bisques, to her delicate blushing and gorgeous costume constructed of antique fabrics. And yet, this angel is made even more individual still by her rare pale, early Kestner coloring. She has such a delicacy! But of course, as all wrestlers do, she has flat stacked brows, brown original sleep eyes with well painted lashes… She is simply an outstanding example! She does have some hip and finger chips, but her head, body and right leg are fine. The chipping is to the upper left hip (see photos) and the inside left hand (not seen from the front). With her rare larger size, and desirable pale blue tasseled boots, I know that she’s undervalued at this price, so grab her up before she’s no longer available! With a layaway plan, you can secure this doll for yourself, while taking your time to pay at your own pace! Please note that dolls are made available on layaway depending on a variety of factors — please check with us if a particular doll can be offered on a layaway plan. Are you tired of. Getting what you bargained for on Internet auctions? Fast and friendly service. No hidden damage or surprises. Fabulous Merchandise at affordable prices. She has an all-bisque body with shapely muscular limbs (hence the name Wrestler), with jointed shoulders and thighs and neck. Wonderful original brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper & lower lashes, feathered brows, closed pouting mouth, and a blushed cheeks and chin. She wears a fabulous original blond mohair wig with bangs. She stands at 8.5 tall. She wears a wonderful deep purple antique silk dress that has the most subtle iridescence to it. Accented with antique lace around the collar, cuffs, and horizontal bands down the front panel defined by two vertical lace bands, knife pleats at the dropped waist and cute little silk flower appliques, antique cream cotton pantaloons. A cute pleated purple hat with rows of ruffled lace and flower trim. But most of all–look at those molded and painted blue boots with black tassels, white ribbed socks with purple band. Just a delightful overall presentation. Marks: 3 (back crown). Condition: Generally excellent except for chipping to upper left hip and inside left fingers. Her bisque head, torso, arms and legs are all free of hairlines or restoration. The bisque is pale and with delicate and skilled painting of her cute features, and no rubs. The sleep eyes function well and retain thier original wax lids. Overall, a fabulous find, made affordable by her minor, hidden damage.
