William Goebel Dolly Face 21" tall, doll mold 521, bisque shoulder head, glass eyes, open mouth with teeth, kid body

Franz Detleff Goebel and his son William Goebel founded their porcelain factory Wilhelmsfeld in 1876, located in Oeslau, Thüringia, Germany to produce porcelain and earthenware objects. By 1879 the company was known as F & W Goebel.  Early F & W Goebel objects were marked with a triangle and half moon symbol with or without a two digit mold number. 

 

By 1893 the company was owned solely by William, who changed the name to William Goebel Porzellanfabrik which is also when Goebel began producing fine bisque dolls of all kinds; small all bisque dolls, bisque Dolly Face shoulder or socket heads on kid or composition jointed bodies, bent limb character Baby dolls, half dolls, bathing beauties, ballerinas and Bécassine dolls. 

 

After 1900 Goebel began using the crown above the WG initials mark, see below.  Goebel also supplied Max Handwerck with some bisque Bébé Elite doll heads.  Goebel is probably best known today for their Hummel figurines and other porcelain objects.
