G. Heubach all bisque Elspeth doll mold 10490, 7 1/2" tall
Heubach family bought an established porcelain factory around
1843 in Lichte, Thuringia, Germany, where they were soon producing
porcelain figurines. About
1910 they began making bisque character socket or shoulder head
dolls, either molded hair or wigged, sleep eyes or their famous
intaglio eyes. One
secret to Heubach's success was the location of an Art School for
artists and sculptors located near their factory, some of the
artists names are: Holwein, Krieger, Niemeyer, Wera vonBartels, Zeiller
Zitzmann - whose initials maybe included in the doll marking.
doll marks; the word Heubach inside a square, a Sunburst
