Gebrüder Heubach all bisque Elspeth doll mold 10490, 7 1/2" tall, painted blonde hair, blue eyes, two upper teeth, brownish rust painted mary jane shoes.

The Heubach family bought an established porcelain factory on September 1840 in Lichte, Thüringia, Germany where they began producing porcelain figurines and other porcelain objects. 

About 1910 Gebrüder Heubach started making bisque character socket or shoulder head dolls, either molded hair or wigged, sleep eyes or with their famous painted intaglio eyes. 

One secret to Gebrüder Heubach's success was an  Art School of artists and sculptors located near their factory, some of the artists names were: Holwein, Krieger, Niemeyer, Wera vonBartels, Zeiller and Zitzmann - whose initials may be included in the Heubach doll marking. 

Gebrüder Heubach doll marks are registered in 1882 (S) sunrise symbol with GH inside and in 1910 (Q) quadrant (or square) with HEUBACH inside, see the many image marks below.

Note: Both German doll makers Gebrüder Heubach & Gustav Heubach (has different mold numbers) used the doll mark GH initials.

 

Gebrüder Heubach supplied bisque doll heads to Emil Bauersachs (Caprice googly eye doll), Cuno & Otto Dressel, Eisenmann & Co., Hamburger & Co., Ilmenau,  Jumeau ink stamped bodies have been found with Gebrüder Heubach marked bisque heads, .A. Luge & Co. (Adlon), Gebrüder Ohlhaver, Otto Schamberger, Wagner & Zetzesche, Gottlieb Zinner & Sohne, plus other small doll factories and doll makers around the Sonneberg area.
