Antique Circa 1880 Kestner Shoulder Head Doll Dressed As A Nun In 1880s

This Nun doll is a early Kestner 22 shoulder head doll that has a very turned head with a very nice leather body. Its from early 1880s. Only marks on back is a 10. She has a closed mouth and brown set eyes. The plaster pate has never been removed from top of her head. Their is no damage to head. L ook at hands they a beautiful. The religious habit was made for her by Sister Caroline of the Sisters of Mercy in 1880s. The habit has many many parts to it and I will probably butcher the names. The black habit dress goes to floor from dolls shoulders. Attached to back is a long train th at hooks up at waist. When unhooked it stretches out behind her. Their is also a attached snood that the nun would place her hair in to keep it from showing. Around her waist is a leather belt that adjusts habit to her waist. Hanging over belt is a full sized sterling rosary. On her head is a white bonnet and around neck is a white collar. Over the bonnet is a black veil. Its truly a work of art. T his doll deserves a wonderful home. Maybe even in a church display. A ny questions I have lots of info supplied by Archives Department of Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

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.

ANTIQUE HEINRICH HANDWERCK SIMON HALBIG BISQUE DOLL Circa 1905 Orig Hair & Eyes. The following information is from a store that specializes in Dolls. This model is circa 1905. She comes with original human hair (don’t judge, it is how they made them back then). Her original glass eyes open when she is stood up or sitting and they close as she reclines. There is minor chipping and scuffs as you would expect from a little dame of 114 years of age. The body is intact and her strings are probably not original though they are fully functioning and properly strung. Her clothes are original. She stands approximately 24 inches tall. I could not find a mold number for her (maybe someone viewing this could help me with that).
