8 1/2Antique Early Kestner Doll Jointed Closed Mouth Composition Body
8 1/2Antique Early Kestner Doll Jointed Closed Mouth Composition Body. This doll is unmarked lending to believe she is a very early example. She measures approximately 8 1/2 standing. I will give you the limited history I was told when I acquired her. She was acquired from a woman in Nashville, TN who is in her 70’s. She was moving out of state and this doll was her grandmother’s doll. She stated the dolls clothes and shoes are original and the only alteration she made for the doll was the crown she made for her hair out of gold knit material. Her composition joints are tight and looking closely at the doll, it appears at some time in her life, she was restrung nicely. She is wearing her original honey blonde human hair wig. Looking inside her head she has old paper inside to keep her brown glass sleep eyes open and prevent her weight from damaging her beautiful bisque head. Her bisque head is in excellent condition. No cracks or chips. Face paint is Kestner perfection. Her jointed body shows some joint wear and the left upper leg is missing a piece of composition where the ball of the hip would be. She is wearing a white matching flower design lace trim dress set that consists of the dress, slip, and bloomers. The dress has intricate detail and scalloped edges. No stains on the dress. It does have a little tear at the waist area (see photos) and a few little holes in the back. She is wearing dainty delicate leather shoes that are incised 3 or 8/0 on the bottom of each shoe. She is also wearing a lovely beaded necklace. I have kept her displayed under a glass dome. She is the perfect cabinet size doll and a fantastic addition to your doll collection. Please view all the photos provided as they are a large part of the description. She is an antique doll with imperfections. However, I will describe each item as best and as honestly as possible, as well as provide photos for your review. I reserve the right to be corrected, and are open to constructive criticisms, after all that is how we learn. All sales are as is and final. See my other listings. For more great items!

Its not often that words fail me, but this glorious piece is even more beautiful than the pictures, and my words pale beside the gown itself. It is the FINEST! I simply cannot imagine the hours/days/months that someone spent making this Edwardian Irish Crochet Wedding Gown. It’s possible it took a number of women quite some time to hand-crochet this dress. To find an entire dress of Irish Crochet is one thing, but this one has the most densely connected elements that Ive seen: they cover the entire dress. You often find them with a great deal of openwork and connecting threads between occasional flowers, shamrocks, etc. The weight of this gown – 2 lbs. 12 ounces – speaks of how much thread was used to create this! This gown has only one seam up the back the bell sleeves are separate. I have tried to photograph it in different lights; and with/without a slip. If you like flowers, this gown is a celebration unto itself. There are filled flowers, solid flowers, lacy flowers, 3-dimensional flowers, shamrocks, pinwheels, buds and tendrils. The vines look like button-hole stitches, and they are doubled to make this dress remarkably strong. Around the neck, at the sleeves and at the hem is a delicate scalloped crochet edging to finish it. There is a bit of stretch to the garment because of the open-ness of the lace, but it would be best to fit a bit loosely so that the crochet lace is not stressed. The wonderful thing about this dress is that it has a deep opening in the back [27] and it fastens with 18 hooks-and-eyes. These are not all evenly spaced, but they do a good job keeping the dress together. The gown has a gently rounded neckline with elbow-length bell sleeves. It is very fitted through the bust and waist without a defined waistline, flaring out at the hips to a full skirt that is slightly longer in the back to form a small train. The gown is photographed with and without a slip. You will need a slip or underdress with this. The color is a pale cream color. This kind of dress comes along very rarely, and I guarantee you will not see another quite like this it is definitely museum-worthy. I have not attempted to soak or clean this in any way. It comes from the estate of a discriminating collector who was active in a number of vintage and car clubs. PLEASE ask for more photos if you are seriously interested in this gown, because I have many and I couldnt show all the details. I estimate this would best fit a modern size Small to Medium, but please go by measurements below. Although there is some stretch to the crochet lace, you must be smaller than the measurements below to insure proper fit. NOTE: Measurements are taken lying flat from the outside, so please double where applicable. Bust: 19, stretches to 20 ½. Waist: 14, stretches to 15 ½. Hips: 21 to 22. Shoulders Across Back: 13. Sleeve length from shoulder to end: 12. Sleeve length underarm to end: 5 ½. Total length in front from top of shoulder: 60. Total length from center back: 66. Weight is 2 lbs, 12 oz. Condition is EXCELLENT with the following issues noted. There are some breaks in the connectors, but not many. There are two at the right side of the back hip that are smaller than a quarter [photo #12 shows two at the top the right photo is a close-up of the larger hole pictured at top left]. There is a small hole at the back right shoulder, and several incidental breaks here and there. There are some minor age discoloration at the neck and the back opening [where it hooks and was handled]. A couple of gray discolored areas near the hem and at the center left sleeve. There are a handful of medium-brown spots here and there. Please message me for more photos, because I have many more pictures and would love to share details of the glory as well as the small issues of this wonderful gown. Due to the delicate nature of vintage items, clothing is not returnable. This item weighs 2 lbs. International Buyers are welcome. Merchandise will be marked at the sales price, as required by the U.

Early 1965 Fender Stratocaster L665, pre-CBS. Original case, original guitar and neck. He added a 5-way switch which I prefer, and it plays the best. It has a smooth feel, perfect action. I bought it for a film I was scoring. I will answer what I can or upload more details of what you need to see. The pick guard is not the mint. He replaced it and didn’t think he would ever sell it, so he didn’t save the minty guard. I have the whammy bar and metal cover.
