19" Old Antique Bisque Head German Century Doll J.d.kestner Character Baby Doll:
UP FOR ADOPTION I am pleased to offer you this "beautiful"antique character baby doll. Incised on the back of her bisque head is "Century Doll Co. Kestner Germany". Reference attributes to Century Doll Co, 1909 to 1930 with the bisque head made by J.D.Kestner, Germany.Baby measures 19" tall being a bisque head on cloth body with composition hands, fingers intact and composition legs from knee down. A mama doll type body with a non-working crier in the back. I notice a few stitches in the cloth on the upper back,possibly someone tried to repair this crier at one time, I do not know her past history. Some light crazing, wear, scuffs on the composition but nothing too terrible. Looking at this bisque head I do not see any cracks or hairlines, a larger size baby head that measures 13" around the head above the brow area with tape measure. Absolutely beautiful Expressive character face with open and close blue glass sleepy eyes that work fine, retains wax on eye lids,baby has painted black lashes around the eyes,"thick painted (wide) slightly molded brows", closed mouth with long accent through the lips, high color blush on her "near perfect" face, a very faint rub on the left cheek I need to mention. There is afaint little dimple in her chin accents her overall charm. Doll wears a gorgeous antique Christening gown with lace trim that buttons down the back, there is a close match bib that can be worn with the gown or removed. Off white in color gownshows minor wear with a few snags throughout but very charming and I believe it is as old as this doll. She wears pantaloons, top and knit booties on her feet. All ready for her new home with her newer vintageteddy bear (included with her). I have taken plenty of photos. Please look at my photos they will serve as part of this description.
