18” Kestner 226 baby

JD Kestner 18” 226 on baby body with original finish & rare articulated wrists. This sweet baby is on his original baby body with original finish and hard to find articulated wrists. The red painted outlines are still seen on his fingers and toes. I love these rarer baby bodies since they make it easy to pose the doll holding items such as a teddy bear, rattle or blanket. This boy has his original, albeit worn hand tied mohair wig with it’s original plaster pate which is now separate. His expressive blue glass eyes have been set. I still have the rockers and will include those in the sale. His tongue is simple red felt placed behind his open mouth which has two upper teeth. His upper and lower lashes are exquisitely painted and his bisque is without hairlines. There is glue residue around the rim edge where the wig was removed. This is entirely covered when he wig is on. He was just restrung and holds a pose perfectly. Baby comes wearing what I believe is his factory original undershirt. His vintage blue and white gingham bloomers and rugged hand knit sweater were added by me. I have had this sweet boy in my personal collection for decades and it is time for him to find a new nursery. SOLD
