Sweet Kestner #40, Swivel Head, All Bisque, Closed Mouth, 5 3/4", Ex. Cond., For Sale
little 5 ¾”, swivel neck, closed mouth Kestner, #“40” ,all bisque doll is near perfection. She
retains her original wig, straw hat and antique clothing. She has no chips or
cracks and has beautiful creamy bisque. Her markings are the clearest I have
see on a doll this size. All limbs are correct and are marked with the correct size
numbers of 5 ½.
She is very special and poses beautifully due to her scarcer neck joining. She has shirred pink socks and detailed molded shoes with heels.
style wig is of soft mohair and is factory original. I did loosen her plaster pate from the
original set, so she can be properly shipped with the head stuffed to protect
the eyes from damage. By doing this, I can see that she has her original functioning
sleep eye set and still retains the wood bar inside her head from her
manufacturer ( please see photos). Her eyes are perfect, there is an odd reflection in the photo, but they are really fine.
neck opening is kid lined. Her joints are of the bisque loop type and are in
excellent condition, with no repairs or breaks.
I am starting her low with .
Please read my great response, study the photos carefully and ask questions, as I only offer a refund if I have missed something that would significantly affect her value.
