I whispered in Hildas ear, Im sending you on a very special mission. I dont know where your next home will be or who will adopt you, but no one would have known over one hundred years ago when you were made at the Kestner factory in Germany, that so many years later you would still look almost brand new and have an opportunity like this! Heres the story: I have some special friends, Julie and P. Who have been yearning to add a child to their family and after years of infertility have been shown a special adoption process. And you, Hilda, are going to become part of the process to help them raise the funds. 100% of the proceeds of this sale will be directed to Nightlight Christian Adoptions, the agency this loving couple are going through. This 16 Hilda is near mint… A very special antique collectible for a very special purpose. Did you imagine that your love of dolls would ever take on such meaning of helping a couple realize their dream of holding a precious little life in their arms? That would be awesome! With over 35 years involved with antique dolls, I know for a fact that it would be very difficult to find a Hilda in much better condition than this one. She is not only near mint, she is also “early out of the mold”, which is highly desired by collectors. To explain briefly, manufacturers usually cast a mold between 30 to 50 times. Over time, the detail of the sculpting is lost due to the plaster mold detail slowly eroding from the. Of moisture in the clay during each casting. If they do not let it dry completely between castings, it can erode even faster. So when you find a doll with the incised markings crisp and deep on the back of the head, as you see in the photos, this is your clue of the fact that THIS Hilda was one of the earliest castings. All the features and the ears are also well detailed and this is why dolls with this asset demand higher prices. One look at this precious baby on the lambskin rug will pull at your heart strings and make you smile! I chose to offer her in this way so you can be amazed, along with me, by her quality, condition and loveliness. She doesn’t even need to be framed by clothing! The painting of her facial features is exquisite! I’ve never seen better! What a lovely piece of artistry! Her one little flaw has been professionally addressed; that of a shallow flake of her left lower eyelid which involved the repainting of a couple of lashes. One feels pleased about a job well done, evidenced when people ask, Where? ! My disclosure of it is part of transparency for the love of this field and building confidence in me and what you are purchasing. Such should not affect her value or your enjoyment of her as can be witnessed in the photos. Her tremble tongue is seen behind her parted lips and 2 pearly white glass teeth. Her inquiring, soft blue sleep eyes work smoothly. A very remarkable fact is that her original 5-piece composition baby body is virtually mint and is so darling with its blushed knees, feet and hands. The entire original finish is free of crazing and cracks which is almost unbelievable for being over 100 years old. She also has all the accent lines on fingers and toes. Any tiny dark spot seen in photos would probably come off without a problem but I haven’t felt the need to even clean her. Please enlarge the photos to peek at all the tiny feather stitching. But I wanted to get this listing up to help as soon as possible. Enjoy and inspect all photos as part of her description. Please pay within 24 hours. Thank you so much for partnering in this demonstration of support for PJ and Julie! Please feel free to ask any questions that come to mind. Don’t miss my other listings such as a wonderful Bru Jne 5!
