All bisque about 9. This absolutely wonderful doll would be a delight for anyone to have in their. Since in all honestly we really do not know who made these wrestler type dolls she may be a wonderful Kestner or perhaps another maker. She has a very muscular body with the arm at bend like all wrestlers. Her head moves along with the arms and legs. The bluest of eyes move also. She has 2 tiny teeth just showing a tad bit. Her completion is soft looking and creamy. In addition she has on the all important wonderful boots. Because time has moved on since these antique dolls were made, more and more are gone or badly damaged. These dolls are more than a doll but an investment in art. The magnificent crochet dress was made especially for her by a master crocheter. A thing of beauty is a joy forever.

What a beautiful and so hard to find Kestner 156 child! She is a huge 30 tall with beautiful brown glass sleep eyes, original wax, finely painted upper and lower lashes and open mouth with teeth. Her nose is pug and her bisque is of the highest quality and delicately colored. She is incised Made in Germany M DEP 11 156. There are no hairlines or repairs or chips to this lovely head and no flaws that I can see. She is on a German fully jointed composition and wood body with it’s original finish. This is an exceptionally lovely body, with no major flaws. Her eyes sleep, but are sticky at times. She has been sitting in my rocking chair and prefers that upright position. This doll has been redressed in a beautiful silk dress made by a local seamstress. It fits her perfectly! She has her original antique silk slip and underwear, which is in delicate condition. The socks and shoes are replacements. She came with this short wig, which I think suits her perky personality. If you would like her to wear longer hair, it could be changed.
