Kling bisque doll, mold 123, 13"

Kling bisque shoulder head doll mold 123, 13" tall, composition jointed body, sleep eyes, painted upper and lower eyelashes, painted feathered brows, closed mouth and wigged.

Founded by Christian Friedrich Kling in Ohrdruf, Thüringia, Germany as a porcelain factory, C. F. Kling & Company did not begin making dolls until around 1870. 

 

Early Kling dolls are only marked with a mold number, after 1880 a bell symbol was added, some with the K for Kling inside the symbol. 

 

Some of the doll sculptors that worked for Kling were; Horn, Kienlenz, Hugo Lieberman, Herman Schmidt and Paul Walter - who created the delightful and intricate hair ornamentations, jewelry, lace etc, seen on China and Parian doll heads.

 

It is believed that George Borgfeldt might have been a silent partner with Kling, as Kling bisque head Bye-Lo's dolls were distributed by Borgfeldt in the USA.
