Antique Dolls






This is a lovely little Kestner character.  It`s a mould 257 and is particularly attractive in this tiny size.  In fact this size is a perfect cabinet size or it would sit nicely on a larger dolls lap.  This little boy measures about 11 inches and dates from around 1916.  He has his original wig which has been cut no doubt by his little child owner at some point in his life, but it still looks cute and suits him well.  He  has a super face with quality bisque and facial painting.  Sleep blue eyes and open mouth with two upper teeth.

The clothes are lovely - particularly his wonderful cape.  He has little pants, underskirt, pretty whiework dress and that stunning cape which has the hood lined in pale blue silk.  The edges have little bobbles all the way round and the hood is so shaped that it looks like a little heart or little ears perhaps surrounding his face!  I absolutely love it .  He has his original quality Kestner body, with some play wear.  The little Schuco bear he is cuddling is also for sale in the Teddy Bear and Friends section of my website.  I can offer layway on this little boy.  Please email if you wish to buy or have any queries. 

The KESTNER 257 CHARACTER LITTLE BOY is priced at just 295
