Eisenmann was founded in 1881 in both Furth, Germany and London,
England by Gabriel & Josef Eisenmann as an export business for
fancy household wares, about 1895 they added dolls and toys.
Their address in 1912 was 46, Basinghall, London, EC.
Prior to 1905 records indicate
Eisenmann made or sold a type of London Rag Doll with a wax overlay and painted
features. Examples do not appear to have survived today or that can be
attributed to Eisenmann.
Around 1911 Eisenmann began to produce and distribute bisque
head dolls made for them by Gebrüder Heubach.
