George Bahr and August Pröschild founded the Bähr & Pröschild doll company (also spelled Baehr & Proeschild) which began as a porcelain and doll factory in 1871 in Ohrdruf, Germany.  They registered their first doll mold in 1888 and merged with the Bruno Schmidt doll company around 1919. 

 

Bahr & Proschild made China, bisque and celluloid dolls (the 1911 trademark of Buporit was used on celluloid dolls) and supplied doll heads and parts to other companies; Carl Harmus Jr., Kley & Hahn, Bruno Schmidt, Heinrich Stier and probably others.  George Borgfeldt was their distributor in the U.S.A..

 

Dating a Bahr & Proschild doll is generally as follows;

 

ca. 1871 - first dolls were marked with only a mold number

ca. 1888 - mold number plus DEP was added

ca. 1895 - the initials B & P were added to the doll mold #

ca. 1900 - crossed swords were added to doll mark

ca. 1911 - registered trademark Buporit

ca. 1919 - B & P was purchased by Bruno Schmidt,

        who then used a heart with BP as part of the marking
