We found this wonderful antique Bisque head doll at an Antique Estate and Museum Doll sale in Maryland a few years back. She has such a lovely expression on her face! We do not know if our darling doll was from a private collector or the Museum Collection. This darling large doll. Came with several old tags which we will include. The two handwritten ones are probably from previous owners or from the museum. The third one is from Theriaults. K ½ Germany, 14 ½ is incised on her head. She has been repainted so we dont see a body stamp. These markings identify our pretty girl as one produced in the JD Kestner factory in Waltershausen, Germany between 1891 and the early 1910s according to our reference books, Doll Makers and Marks and Kestner, King of Dollmakers. Kestner was known as the. King of Dolls because his dolls were so spectacular and he was the earliest of the German dollmakers to set up his factory in Waltershausen providing jobs for 100s of the German townspeople. We have learned that Kestner heads have certain characteristics such as eyebrows that are heavy and shiny, high bow upper lips that have upturned ends and orange eye and nostril dots that match the shade of their lips. Our charming Young Lady fits all of the criteria mentioned above. HEAD This dolls charming bisque face has dreamy blue glass sleep eyes and thick multi-stroke eyebrows. She has an open mouth smile with tiny white teeth. She has pretty pink blushed cheeks. Her head has no hairlines, chips or cracks. Her soft blonde curly wig is old and may be original.

We will include it in a separate box. We gave her the antique style floral dress she is currently is wearing. It is handmade and quite lovely. The matching sash is tied in the back. Her old handsewn slip and bloomers are most likely original. They have both have aged with a lovely aged patina. She also has old stockings and delicate antique black shoes. Her sweet head is topped with a newer straw hat. BODY This pretty young lady. Has an 11-piece ball jointed composition body, arms and legs. It appears to have been repainted at some time. Her shoulders, arms, wrists and hips and knees all still bend. The stringing in her arms and legs is loose so we will provide a doll stand for her. Our Lovely Young Lady is about 27 inches tall.

GORGEOUS Rare Early Antique Bahr Proschild Belton Type Dome Head Doll Mold 309. This is an early 18 tall B&P doll made in Germany. She is incised “309 9″ on the rear of her shoulderplate. She has no damage to her very pale bisque shoulderhead or her delicately sculpted hands and fingers. Her eyes are absolutely stunning- they remind me of the paperweight eyes seen on French dolls of the same time period. Her body is leaking saw dust and is fragile so her new owner may want to make repairs. Her lovely antique dress fits her perfectly and covers much newer undergarments. The mohair wig is vintage as is the vevet hat- she is truly an outstanding beautiful antique doll!

Antique Early Pouty Kestner All Bisque Doll. This sweet little doll is just 5 ½ tall without her wig. She is marked 0 on her head and torso. She has a swivel neck with jointed shoulders and hips with the elastic pulled though and tied. Her stringing is a little loose, so she could easily be pegged properly, which I will leave to her new owner. She has a chubby round face with tiny blue sleep eyes, multistroked eyebrows, long painted eyelashes,, and a closed pouty mouth with red lip line. She has rosy cheeks and lumpy ears. Her blonde mohair wig is nice and full with center part and curls in back. There is a plaster pate glued to her wig. Her crocheted ecru dress is newer, but her blouse and hat appear antique and original and have some discoloration. As for her overall condition — her legs are antique and fit properly, but they may be replacements, as this model usually has bare feet or black multistrap boots. However, her yellow boots are spectacular with black side inserts, toe tips and heels with white hose and blue garters. There is a tiny flake on the neck of her front torso and another on the back torso with a swirling line coming down from it, maybe a firing crack. She displays very well and is a nice size for creating a room box scene. A darllng girl, a very sought-after model by a prestigious maker! Thank you for looking at my items.

22 Early Closed- Mouth Kestner. Bisque Head / Composition Body – Stands Approx. This is an exceptional early closed-mouth 22″ Kestner doll, with her original plaster pate, and marked only “13. She has a pale complexion and a beautifully painted face with delicately feathered eyebrows. She is wearing a gorgeous cream-color embroidered silk-and-lace dress with matching hat and pink leather shoes. She displays beautifully and will be a wonderful addition to any collection. Beautiful antique condition — from a non-smoking environment. Her bisque has no hairlines, chips, or restoration. Her ball-jointed composition body appears to have been repainted a long time ago. IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE – for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of “hair” lashes on bisque heads (if they had them), not-so-tight stringing, etc. (2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors – for example: reset eyes in most cases! , repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc. Any MAJOR issues — hairline crack, total repaint, etc. – would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not. They are to be expected. I’LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, or U. These countries have more flexible Priority Post options, but it depends on the size and value of the item you’re purchasing. And provided the items can travel safely in the same box. Opens in a separate window/tab. As often happens, it’s the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they’re doing. And then, when they realize they’ve ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective. BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls — so, please understand that they won’t be in brand-new condition. There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls. IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

George Bahr and August Pröschild founded the Bähr & Pröschild doll company (also spelled Baehr & Proeschild) which began as a porcelain and doll factory in 1871 in Ohrdruf, Germany. They registered their first doll mold in 1888 and merged with the Bruno Schmidt doll company around 1919. Not at all as prolific in the volume of dolls they produced compared to Simon & Halbig or Kestner, this firm nevertheless excelled in producing high quality dolls of superior craftsmanship. The pinnacle of their doll production was with the bisque heads of the 200 series dolls, the most popular of which were the 224 and 225 molds. Most desirable of all were the closed-mouth versions of which this is one. Bahr & Proschild presents to you this closed-mouth 225-model child doll, in a gorgeous antique costume! She stands at 17 tall, with a bisque socket dome head with a delightful expression and a gorgeous face, on a beautiful, shapely original wood and composition body. A chocolate brown human hair wig adorns her head, and she’s dressed in a gorgeous cream colored antique frock with pink lining with a sweet bonnet and a gold pin at her neckline. This nice, affordable cabinet size doll is sure to win your heart!! Make off with her now and add her to your collection! This doll is available on my customizable layaway plans! With a layaway plan, you can secure this doll for yourself, while taking your time to pay at your own pace! She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features; set deep brown glass spiral eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, a closed mouth, and a soft rosy complexion. She has pierced ears with antique aqua blue glass bead earrings, and stands at 17 on her original straight-wristed wood and composition Sonneberg body, with a highly detailed molded torso. She wears a deep chocolate brown mohair wig in a wavy style, and comes with her original brown human hair wig. She wears a beautiful light cream colored frock, with pink trim running along silk pleated front both sides and around the drop-waisted pleats and lace overlay. It is decorated with pale cream colored pleated silk down the front of the bodice, and lace over the shoulder to 3/4 length to ends of the sleeves. Underneath she wears a white cotton full slip, with lace trim at the hem. On her feet are a pair of white knit stockings and white steel buckle adorned leather shoes. On her head is a straw bonnet, with white lace overlay, pink, blue and white flowers, and ruffled white lace at the brim and white ties, and she wears antique earrings with round aqua blue glass beads. MARKS: 225 on the back of her head CONDITION: Generally Excellent! The bisque head is free of any hairlines, or cracks, bearing top-quality modeling and painting of features. However, there was a tiny repair right behind her right ear, which is barely noticeable. The ear had originally been repaired terribly with some kind of plastic which was ugly. I hired Sandy Hohne, a professional doll doctor re-repair the ear where its barely noticeable now(see last photo of the back of the bisque head). The glass eyes are aligned well. The original Sonneberg body is in good shape. The torso is very shapely, with very detailed molding. The costume is in great shape. Overall, this wonderful girl has held up nicely over the years, and would make a fine addition to any collection. Be sure to check out my other items as I list new pieces every day!

Offering a GORGEOUS large 6 early German all-bisque stiff-leg Kestner doll. She has the wrestler type body.. With rounded chest, belly and chubby thighs… Her proportions are ample like that of a young girl child. This beauty has an open ball head and a gorgeous innocent face w/large (knock-out) cobalt blue glass eyes in the original setting… Eyes are stationary Her eyes remind me of the German dolls made for the French trade. Her eye cut-outs are almond shaped and outlined with black and surrounded by lush black painted eyelashes… On top & bottom. Stiff neck as well as stiff legs… Her arms do articulate. Her right arm has an old repair & it was nicely done. Her right foot/tip of shoe seems to have a bit of paint touch-up.. ? From what I can see with a magnifying glass. Her markings aren’t very legible… It could possibly be a “1″ or an “11″… ? I can make out two vertical indents… That’s all that imprinted. Her face is exquisite with superb face painting. She boasts a lovely pale complexion, her bisque is sublime, very pale… I flashed her head and saw no hairlines. Doll has arched feather-painted eyebrows with the signature Kestner closed mouth of pursed coral butterfly lips. Her brows and lips have the unmistakable sheen of the lovely gloss paint they used in the early days for their quality dolls. She has a couple tiny kiln specks on her face and a minor factory flaw on the very back of her neck, which looks like faint tool marks… This can be seen as a couple thin black horizontal lines… Almost like pencil strokes, mid-way up her neck. Please enlarge photos to view. The quality wig is machine stitched down the center and has a fitted gauze head cap just like an antique wig. Her cream colored vintage/antique dress was made from fabric scraps & old lace… It’s handstitched and closes at her back with a straight pin. Doll has sweet shirred pink stockings with darling black one-strap high-heeled slippers, the slippers have yellow-tan soles She’s in excellent condition & ready to display… You’ll love her. Flower basket is not included in sale… It’s a photo prop only. She does not come with stand.
