OOAK New Repaint Kish Vinyl Doll Size 12-inches Lifelike Painted Eyes Margarete
An heirloom for doll collectors . . . painted by Nancy Lee Moran
A beautiful sculpt, painted by a portrait artist who admires dolls, lovely clothing, painted eyes = an artistic doll!
Margarete is an 11.5-inch (29 cm) doll by Helen Kish in 1997, Limited Edition 750. In the book Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher (hardcover published in 2006), Margarete is shown as “Loves Me, Loves Me Not” on page 74. She wears the same size clothing as Bethany Kish (the original Bethany doll, not Bitty Bethany).
Her face and eyes have been repainted by Nancy Lee Moran in 2016. She is pristine clean, free of smoke or other scents. The vinyl doll has jointed shoulders, hips, and neck. She comes with her original white clothing and hairpiece, shoes, box, Kish COA and my repainting certificate. The other clothing by MHD is not included in the auction.
Here is the web page that Nancy created for Margarete:
Nancy used a blush of shadow-colors in creases, dimples, and concave areas of the face. Variations of the cheek color are on the nose and chin, at the skin-corners of the lips, at inner corners of the eyes, along the inner edge of eyelids, in the nostrils, in the collar bone crevice, inside the ears and on earlobes.
