Ernst Heubach dolly face mold 1901, 16" tall

Ernst Heubach Dolly Face doll mold 1901, 16" tall, bisque shoulder head, stationary fixed eyes, painted lashes, sleep eyes, open mouth, jointed kid body.

Ernst Heubach's porcelain factory was in Koppelsdorf, Germany, they made bisque doll heads on kid or composition bodies.  Ernst Jr. married Beatrice Marseille, daughter of Armand Marseille and one of E. Heubach's sculptors had a brother that worked as a sculptor at Marseille, which may explain why their dolls have similarities to one another.

In 1919 Heubach and Marseilles merged and formed the United Porcelain Factory of Koppelsdorf (Vereinigte Koppelsdorf Porzellanfabrik vorm Armand Marseille and Ernst Heubach).  By 1932 the two companies went their separate ways.  During this union, 1919-1932 dolls are often marked with Heubach Koppelsdorf.

E. Heubach also made bisque heads for Cuno & Otto Dressel (Jutta), Johannes Gottilf Dietich (Igodi), Gebrüder Ohlhaver (Revelo), Seyfarth & Reinhardt (dolls with the SUR mark), Adolf Wislizenus and others.
