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.

None of the paint pigments use lead or cadmium. While painted for adult collectors, the paint is safe around toddlers and babies.
The photos are of the actual doll, taken in natural daylight near a window by Nancy Lee in her smoke-free studio. Nancy is NOT affiliated with any doll company, creator or manufacturer.
The doll page on the artist’s website (Google: Nancy Lee Moran) shows that each doll she has repainted is unique.
Nancy Lee Moran's POLICY TO SHOW RESPECT for doll creators is as follows: The dolls I repaint were factory-artisan painted or were blank mannequins. I would not repaint a doll that the artist (Helen Kish) had painted herself, such as some of those in the Kish Signature Line. I would not paint a Kish sculpt in a limited edition of fewer than 300 (preferably 500 or more). I consult the beautiful book I own titled Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher (hardcover published in 2006). I am NOT affiliated with any doll company, creator or manufacturer.
