Heinrich Vortmann and Max Handwerck began their doll making business in 1899, located in Waltershausen, Thuringia, Germany. 

Mr. Vortmann left the business in 1902, sometime after Max passed away, thus his widow Anna was left the sole owner of the company.  Max designed the bisque doll heads, however many of them were actually produced by William Goebel, thus they may bear the Goebel trademark of a triangle with a half moon.

They are probably best known for their all porcelain Bébé Elité doll, other registered doll trade names are 1902 Triumph Bébé, 1913 Madame Butterfly and 1922 Handwerck Celebrated Doll.

Max Handwerck also made Elite googly eye dolls.
