Early 1900s Antique Kammer & Reinhardt 192 Doll - £595.00 (RESERVED)
Antique dolls in such fabulous original condition rarely come up for sale so I was thrilled to find this very special Kammer & Reinhardt mould 192 doll.

The original ball jointed wood and composition body is of superb quality as you would expect and with it's straight wrists I'd say she was made for the French market.

The original factory stringing has worn just a tiny bit slacker over the years but still strong and she still poses well.
