antique black Kestner doll

This sweet girl is a rare treasure to find. Standing 12” tall, she may be in her factory original outfit. I purchased her many years ago as such. This was my first time undressing her and her socks did not want to come off. You can see the red staining on them from her red leather shoes. She wears all antique pantaloon, a scalloped undershirt, factory chemise, antique socks and red leather shoes with their original ribbon ties.Her red cape has a silk lined bonnet and makes her look like little red riding hood She has her original pate with black mohair wig still attached. Her head is incised Made in Germany 6 B. Her head is free of hairlines and her beautiful brown eyes are set. It appears that two fingers on one hand have missing tips, but I am not certain if this is the case. There is no change in color where the “ breaks” would be and also I can see the dark outlines of where her fingernails have been painted. They all look the same to me. I have shown them in a close ip pic, so you be the judge. She holds a pose nicely and has such a darling presence about her. You don’t see these black cabinet sized Kestner dolls come along very often. Please email with any questions. SOLD
