Kling bisque doll, mold 123, 13"

Kling bisque shoulder head doll mold 123, 13" tall, composition jointed body, sleep eyes, feathered brows, closed mouth.

Founded by Christian Friedrich Kling in Ohrdruf, Thuringia, Germany as a porcelain factory, C. F. Kling & Company did not begin making dolls until around 1870. 

 

Early Kling dolls are only marked with a mold number, after 1880 a bell symbol was added, some Kling dolls have been found with the marking; K & R or K * R, so it's assumed that Kling may have manufactured some bisque heads for Kämmer & Reinhardt prior to 1902. 

 

Some of the doll sculptors that worked for Kling were; Horn, Kienlenz, Hugo Lieberman, Herman Schmidt and Paul Walter - who created the delightful and intricate hair ornamentations, jewelry, lace etc, seen on China and parian doll heads.

 

It is believed that George Borgfeldt might have been a silent partner with Kling - Kling bisque head Bye-Lo's Babies were distributed by Borgfeldt in the USA.
