Kammer & Reinhardt Dolls 1886-1932 German
The Kämmer & Reinhardt doll company was
formed ca. 1886-1932 in Waltershausen, Thuringia, Germany by Ernst
Kämmer and Franz Reinhardt. Early K & R dolls were made of wax.
K & R bisque doll heads and bodies were designed by Kämmer & Reinhardt, but most of the
heads were manufactured by Simon
& Halbig (which is why many dolls have both companies mark; K
& R and S & H), as K & R did not have their own porcelain factory.
K & R supplied some bisque heads used to make Emile Berliner gramophone
talking dolls in 1890-1894. They also
purchased bisque heads from the porcelain factories of KlingandSchuetzmeister & Quendt. In 1902
K & R purchased the
Heinrich Handwerck doll
company when it's founder passed away, by 1920 they also acquired the Simon
& Halbig company as well.
From 1886 to
1909 they made only dolly faced dolls with a bisque head on a
composition ball jointed body or kid, many with an open mouth with
teeth. After 1909 they made many types of dolls; bisque,
composition or celluloid heads and even cloth costume dolls with wired bodies dressed
in various professions. However, K & R is probably best known for their
character baby and child dolls.
