Old Antique Bisque Head Composition German Jdk Kestner Character Baby Doll:
Up for ADOPTIONhere is a"wonderful" antique bisque head German character baby doll. I do not know his past history but will describe the best I can with any flaws. Incised on the back of his bisque head what looks like "Made in G Germany 11, 211 J.D.K." Reference attributes this baby doll to J.D. Kestner, 1880s, Waltershausen, Germany. This is a bisque socket head on jointed composition bent knee baby doll body. Doll is strung fine and jointed at the neck, shoulders and legs with all fingers and toes intact, measures about 15" tall. Fingers and toes intact and accented with red lines for that realistic look, wear, scuffs throughout body with some paint loss, areas of repaint. Body is old and worn but all together intact. This baby doll has this "great" Expressive character face with open and close brown glass sleepy eyes that work fine, retains most wax on eye lids, baby has painted black lashes around the eyes, feathered brown brows, and molded open mouth with no teeth. High color blush on the cheeks with no paint rubs or scratches on near perfect face, a little double baby chin accents his overall charm. Looking inside this bisque head I see plaster cement that was used to secure the sleepy eyes on rocker as most doll people do. I flashed inside the head and notice a "oval surface line crack" on the outside of this head, I do not see it on the inside, see photo #7 please, it goes through the "G" and to the back of ear area. There is a little old plaster cement on the rim from a plaster pate of long ago. Lovely old blonde mohair wig is old and worn, slips over the head, may need a little TLC, there is no pate. Doll wears old "hand made" two piece outift, stockings and shoes. There is a matching bonnet. Clothing does show wear. All ready for his new home with a newer vintage teddy bear.A reproductionbear of some sort with button that says "SagamoreHill". I have taken plenty of photos.
