Lg German Bisque Character Child Doll-257-kestner-30"-tremble Tongue-vntg Outfit:
This sale is for a 30"german bisquecharacter childdoll, by J.D. Kestner #257. She is marked made in Germany,J.D.K. 257, with a 53 at the very bottom of the bisque socket head. She was made shortly after 1914, according to the Kestner, King of Dollmakers book by Jan Foulke. She hasher original wood/composition ball jointed toddler body, original blue german threaded glass eyes that open and close easily, fulllashes and original eyelid wax. She has no chips, cracks or hairlines in her bisque. Her color is considered fairly high color with very rosy cheeks which have no rub marks. Her nose has one small rub mark or light spot. The composition and wood body has it's original finish and is in very good condition with something plastic glued at the front torso. Goof off could probably take this off which I will leave up to the buyer. Her tremble tongue is very active. There is a spot of paint missing on the inner bottom lip. To the eye, it almost looks like another tooth, but she does have 2 upper front teeth. Her blonde long hair is a replacement and could use some shampooing. Again, I will let the new owner decide. She is overall, in very good condition and is a lovely doll with the integrity of a Kestner.
She is part of a large doll collection used in a small doll museum inthe Midwest that I will be putting on . This is truly an outstandinggroup of dolls!
