I have a doll with a bisque head marked, Made in Germany J.D.K. 237.

She has, open dark brown eyes with painted eyelashes top and bottom, open mouth, and her wig is light brown.

The body of the doll is a hard composition (not sure what material) and she's approx 18" tall. I am aware of the Kestner doll history and wonder what might the value be? Can you help, please?

I have one like yours
by: Karen

This is probably not too helpful, but I have an almost identical doll as yours. Same marking on the back, and this is the only time I have found another with this marking and with this face. Mine is 13 inches tall. She also has a signature behind the right ear, Mary Ciroosta (or something like that, it's very hard to read).

I acquired her at a retirement home rummage sale, where all of the items are donated by the elderly residents, either while they are living there, or bequeathed after they pass on. So I know it was owned by a senior citizen. I have been trying to figure out if she is a reproduction. I feel pretty sure she is but I want to know for sure.

Best of luck!
