Heinrich Handwerck Doll Face, Mold #109, 15

 

H. Handwerck bisque head Dolly Face doll mold 109, 15"

Heinrich and Minna Handwerck dolls were produced in Gotha near Waltershausen, Thuringia, Germany beginning in 1876 until they were purchased by Kammer & Reinhardt in 1902. 

K & R continued to produce the Handwerck molds until at least 1932, between that time period they added "oHG" to the marking. 

Handwerck's  bisque doll heads were designed by Handwerck, but produced by Simon & Halbig and are of high quality and fine workmanship which continued under the K & R ownership.

Heinrich Handwerck is probably best known for their Bébé dolly faced bisque head child dolls and babies, kid or composition jointed bodies, they also produced some celluloid dolls, too.
