22 Early Closed- Mouth Kestner. Bisque Head / Composition Body - Stands Approx. This is an exceptional early closed-mouth 22" Kestner doll, with her original plaster pate, and marked only "13. She has a pale complexion and a beautifully painted face with delicately feathered eyebrows.
She is wearing a gorgeous cream-color embroidered silk-and-lace dress with matching hat and pink leather shoes. She displays beautifully and will be a wonderful addition to any collection. Beautiful antique condition -- from a non-smoking environment.Her bisque has no hairlines, chips, or restoration. Her ball-jointed composition body appears to have been repainted a long time ago. IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE - for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of "hair" lashes on bisque heads (if they had them), not-so-tight stringing, etc. (2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors - for example: reset eyes in most cases!
, repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc. Any MAJOR issues -- hairline crack, total repaint, etc. - would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not.They are to be expected. I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, or U. These countries have more flexible Priority Post options, but it depends on the size and value of the item you're purchasing. And provided the items can travel safely in the same box.
Opens in a separate window/tab. As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they're doing. And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective.
BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition.There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls. IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
