Small Kestner w/Over the knee shirred Stockings
Hi. I wanted share a wonderful little doll I have added to my collection. Although not marked with any ID other than #1's on the back of her head and upper arms I do believe she resembles the work of Kestner.
To my knowledge, she is all original except for her wig and clothing. Her inner thighs are lined with kidd leather. She has lovely painted eyebrows and lashes with brown glass sleep eyes.
Although she has a German look, ...a fellow doll collector told me she is considered an all bisque mignonette. I'd always thought a mignonette had French origins.
Seems there is always something new to learn about old dolls!
