Reproductions Information

The dolls featured in my Kestner Korner are reproductions of antique dolls made by the German manufacturer J. D. Kestner. They were part of Kestner's "Wunderkind" series (ca. 1909), which came in a boxed set with one complete doll and three exchangeable character heads. The original Kestners were identified by a number, but a later mold manufacturer gave them the name used to identify the ones you see in my collection. There are four dolls with two being made into both a boy and girl doll making a total of six dolls in the series.

All of my antique reproductions are hand painted and costumed by myself. I try to bring back the nostalgic look of days gone by. I use high quality materials (such as glass eyes, mohair wigs, silk dresses, leather shoes) and adorable accessory toys for my repro creations. Each antique repro comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. The certificate attests to the repro being painted and assembled by Annette Herrmann and the doll's unique position in this open numbered edition.
