I believe this is a Kestner. This doll has fabulous molded curls that are very detailed. Her head sits on her original fabulous antique body with antique leather boots and cloth printed socks.Something tells me that the socks may have been added at a later time, as the material looks and feels a lot fresher than the rest of her body. She has her original arms and hands, no chipped fingers.
Her head and shoulder plate are free of chips and cracks-no hairlines. However she does have a manufacturing glaze flaw above her right eye. Some slight paint loss on 5 of her molded curls, where her head is laid down. She is wearing a wonderfully tailored mommy made vintage dress and antique pantaloons with vintage replaced button closure. She appears to be stuffed with sawdust and hay in her legs.
