I am pleased to offer this lovely antique German bisque head doll. Incised on the back of her bisque head is a number 5, below the kid leather on the back of her shoulder plate looks like "Made in Germany". I did not remove this leather to look for any other markings since it is glued secure and looks fragil. Reference attributes the J.D. Kestner, 1880+ Waltershausen Germany. Many of the early dolls were marked with only a size number. This doll has a plaster cement pate which is attributed to J.D. Kestner. I do not know her past history and or if any restorations were made but will try to describe her and any Flaws the best I can.  This is a bisque shoulder head, bisque hands from elbow down with all fingers intact and they do match. Some wear on fingers. Measures 16" tall. Old kid leather saw dust filled body shows wear with a patch around the upper legs (photo #10). Her leather upper arms are really worn and I can not be certain if they are her original arms. Doll has a beautiful face with open blue glass eyes, painted lashes around her eyes, dark brown brows, red accent dots in the corner of her eyes and nostrils. Her eyes are lovely but I do not know if they have been "fixed" to stay open or how she was made. My reference tells me some of these dolls were made with fixed open eyes. She has open mouth with rounded upper teeth intact. Nice color blush on her cheeks with no rubs or scratches. She has a protrude little chin. Lovely auburn vintage wig is glued secure on this plaster pate.  I see no cracks on this bisque head or hairlines. Doll wears a fashionably green two piece dress, a velvet material accented in beautiful fur. It is in nice shape but may be missing a button down the front. There is a wonderful matching fur bonnet, her shoes are accented with fur. Clothing is older and in nice condition most likely made especially for her. She wears antique tops, one being silk, white eyelet slip, pantaloons and vintage shoes. I have taken plenty of photos. Please look at my photos they will serve as part of this description. If you would like further photos please email. This is a Lovely "well dressed" Kestner doll for a collection or display! Offering AS IS condition shown, with NO reserve auction. I do combine shipping and have other dolls posted on ebay. Shipping cost US standard mail in the US would be $8.00 to $12.00 pending your location in the US., outside the US First class mail international estimate $24.00 with plenty of wrap to protect this doll. I package with diapers around the doll head along with tissue and bubblewrap shipping face down. Please note that Import duties, outside US taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility.  Thank you and Good Luck!
