J.D.K. 260 Doll

My mother found this in the trash.

It's a jointed glass head doll. I'm guessing the body and arms are made out of paper Mache. The hands are glass as well.

However, I have looked through every piece of the internet to try and find this doll and how much it could be worth.

It has the original brown long slightly curled hair. Original outfit including the underwear, plus the blue shoes and pink socks.

This doll has blue "sleep eyes". I've used every bit of information about this doll to type into Google, and nothing has popped up or matched it at least.

If you have any information about this doll please contact me.

Check out the Collectors Encyclopedia of Dolls by Coleman. She is made by the Kestner doll firm, and is probably early 20th c. Kestner, known as King of Dollmakers, began his firm in the late 18th c. His dolls are often among the top quality German dolls. Correct me, folks, but I think he made some for the French market. Good price guide's like that by Denise Van Patten has more good information, and if you goole kestner 260, you'll find out more. Good Luck! Her head is German bisque, or unfired porcelain, and her eyes are blown glass.
