Wiefel & Company

Dolls 1912 to 1923

 

 

In 1912 Erste Steinbacher Porzellanfabrik was sold to Hugo Wiefel and renamed Wiefel & Company, thus a new doll mark was used of W & Co or W & C, with or without a doll mold number.

 

By 1914 Wiefel's manufacturing was shut down because of World War I and restarted up again in 1918, although it doesn't appear that bisque doll heads were resumed being made until around 1923.
