Kestner Gray Haired Lady with Braided Bun #189-17 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Fantastic dollhouse lady made by the firm of Kestner in Germany c. 1900 with a lovely gray hairstyle with lots of brush strokes to show hair strands and waves, pulled back with a fabulous bun in the back that shows braiding. This is one of the nicest hairstyles I have ever come across. Great execution on the face with much detailing and pursed lips. Head, arms and legs are bisque. Shoes are molded with small heels and light brown soles. Lovely antique outfit consisting of ruffled trimmed blouse and checked gathered skirt. Great character face and hair and one I have never had before. 6" tall. Clothing shows some aging.
