Rare German Bisque Head #102 Kestner ( French Wrestler) For Sale

Rare German Bisque Head #102 Kestner ( French Wrestler)

This is such a pretty antiquebisque doll'shead with the mould no. 102 which is attributed to Kestner,and known as 'The French Wrestler' even though it is of German origin.

This sale is for the head and wig only.I have had it for many years , waiting for the right body to come along, but with no luck.It would need an all bisque 'wrestler type ' body, so called because of its muscular, stocky body and thighs. I feel it is time to let it go to someone who can make more use of it than I can.

The head has the sloping French cut opening, and has fixed brown glass eyes.She has multi stroke brows and painted eyelashes.Her mouth has square cut teeth...two on the top, and one on the bottom (which is correct), and she also has pierced ears.She has delicate shading above her eyes,and on her chin.

Under normal observation the bisque looks fine, buton closer examination, as you will see in close up, she has a lot of fine 'peppering' to the bisque (tiny little dots peppered all over, from the kiln),so whilst it is a lovely modelling, it is not a good quality to the bisque finish. Despite this it is a rare item, and would stillbe worthy of a place in your collection.

On the back of the head it has the no. 102 (mould no)and lower down it has the no. 13 (size no.)

I have checked and found that a size 12 makes up a 9 inch doll, and a size 14 makes up a 10 inch doll, so based on these facts, I assume this would make up a 9½ " doll, but as doll sizes varywithdifferent bodies,I can't guarantee this fact...it is just anestimation.

The head measures 2½" high (6.5cm)

She has no cork or plaster pate,and I doubt the mohair wig is original, but it suits her nicely, and is a lovely rich auburn which matches her eyebrows.

There is no damage to the head, no chips, cracks or hairlines...just that kiln peppering,which is a bit unfortunate, but I think still worthy of a offer or two!
