For price reference see page # 318 in the book,'Doll Values' 13th Edition by Linda Edward. This cutie is dressed as Alice in Wonderland. She wears newer: lace trimmed pantaloons; lace trimmed slip.
A pale blue dress; a lace trimmed pinafore; and shoes and socks. There are no hairlines in her head as examined by a bright light. There is no repainting to the head or body as examined by a black light. She has her original body finish.Her body has a very small crack on the right knee joint and another small damage (looks like glued back) to her left hip joint. She is marked on the back of her head: Made in German 143.
She has an open mouth with open/close blue glass eyes. I think she wears her original wig since it has some of the plaster pate attached. This is a nice example of this Kestner mold.
