She has pretty blue eyes, original hair and dress. This lady might been repaired or repainted because she is in pretty good condition despite her age whcich is probably about 130 years. Due to the nature of the material she made of she still has cracks on the shoulder head. The lower arms also have cracks and chips to the fingers, which are typical to this kind of dolls. The cloth part of the doll looks strong with no holes but looks like was repaired. Decorative boots are a little shabby. The dress is very old so it has some age holes in it but it is still gorgeous. The ribbon and the necklace might have been added later. Please refer to the pictures for more details. The chair is not a part of the offer.

8 1/2Antique Early Kestner Doll Jointed Closed Mouth Composition Body. This doll is unmarked lending to believe she is a very early example. She measures approximately 8 1/2 standing. I will give you the limited history I was told when I acquired her. She was acquired from a woman in Nashville, TN who is in her 70′s. She was moving out of state and this doll was her grandmother’s doll. She stated the dolls clothes and shoes are original and the only alteration she made for the doll was the crown she made for her hair out of gold knit material. Her composition joints are tight and looking closely at the doll, it appears at some time in her life, she was restrung nicely. She is wearing her original honey blonde human hair wig. Looking inside her head she has old paper inside to keep her brown glass sleep eyes open and prevent her weight from damaging her beautiful bisque head. Her bisque head is in excellent condition. No cracks or chips. Face paint is Kestner perfection. Her jointed body shows some joint wear and the left upper leg is missing a piece of composition where the ball of the hip would be. She is wearing a white matching flower design lace trim dress set that consists of the dress, slip, and bloomers. The dress has intricate detail and scalloped edges. No stains on the dress. It does have a little tear at the waist area (see photos) and a few little holes in the back. She is wearing dainty delicate leather shoes that are incised 3 or 8/0 on the bottom of each shoe. She is also wearing a lovely beaded necklace. I have kept her displayed under a glass dome. She is the perfect cabinet size doll and a fantastic addition to your doll collection. Please view all the photos provided as they are a large part of the description. She is an antique doll with imperfections. However, I will describe each item as best and as honestly as possible, as well as provide photos for your review. I reserve the right to be corrected, and are open to constructive criticisms, after all that is how we learn. All sales are as is and final. See my other listings. For more great items!

Bisque Head Marked “K” and “XII”. Early French Wood-and-Compo Body. Blue Paperweight (Set) Eyes. Ears Pierced through the Head. Open Mouth with Teeth. Original Antique Doll on Antique Body. Unsigned Doll: We confidently attribute this doll to J. Kestner as one of their early works. But, as with any attribution, what you are getting is a professional opinion. Thank you for your understanding. 17.5″ tall and marked only with a fancy incised “K” on the back of her head, and straight incised (not inked) marks at the rim that are either “XII” or “IIX. She has an early French wood-and-composition body stamped Breveté S. ” Notice the open “peg-strung hips and wood components, such as the arms. She is a beautiful treasure! Her face is well painted… And unusual, with a tall curved/”wraparound” forehead — that is, the head opening is set further back vs. Her ears are pierced straight through the head, similar to early Jumeaus. She has a small “o”-shaped dimple on her chin. She has fabulous blue set paperweight eyes, open mouth, feathered brows and lashes. Her wig — which had been replaced — is in a beautiful set, and the clothing is very old but not original to doll. Notice the 2-piece undergarments — slip and pantaloons. Her pin could possibly be gold. Her shoes are vintage. Altogether a really interesting and unusual doll. The following props are not included: DOLL STAND, MIRROR. Beautiful antique condition — from a non-smoking environment. It appears that at least one finger on either hand has been repaired and the paint touched up. The clothing has some aging and could use a soaking… Which I will let you decide. 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.
