ANTIQUE 21" KESTNER GERMANY BISQUE DOLL MARK 10
Beautiful bisque porcelain head antique doll. Open mouth, modeled teeth, outlined lips, waxed eyebrows, gentle coloring, jointed leather body, bisque lower arms. The head on the back is marked J or F, Made in Germany and with number 10 on the top. The head is detached from the body. I am not a doll expert, but in my opinion the overall condition, considering its age, is very good. The body doesn't have any holes, joints are fine. Condition of the bisque shoulder head is fine, no cracks, chips, paint wear or repairs. The head may need some dusting or cleaning, which I didn't attempt to do. The blue "paperweight" glass eyes are fine with no cloudiness. Detailed head photo has yellowish tint, but this is not the accurate color, it is like the picture next to the full body doll. Also, on the detailed photo, it is hair on the face, not hairline cracks. Acquired from daughter of long time doll collector, who died few years ago. Not sure what else to say to better describe this doll. So, if I missed something, please ask. Dimension : approximately 21" high, bisque shoulder head is 5" wide and 2-3/4" deep.
