Gebrüder Ohlhaver Baby Doll, 12" tall, bisque
socket head baby, jointed composition bent leg baby body
Founded by brothers Jonny Paulas Gerhard and Hinrick
Ohlhaver in 1912 in Sonneberg, Germany, the
owners immortalized their names with the famous Revalo
trademark - which is the owners surname spelled backwards phonetically without the silent HH's.
Ohlhaver's bisque doll heads came from several
porcelain factories; Ernst Heubach
(1919 Igodi patent swivel head by Johannes Gotthilf Dietrich),
Gebrüder Heubach and Carl Harmus Porzellanfabrik Mengersgereuth,
the latter manufacturer is identified by an X
inside a circle in the marking, as shown and noted below.
Gebrüder Ohlhaver sold
child toddler character dolls, bent limb baby dolls and Dolly Face dolls
from 8 to 28" tall with jointed composition or kid bodies, of which
all are very good quality.
Additional Ohlhaver advertised doll names are:
1913 Revalo ball jointed child toddler dolls with movable tongue, socket or
shoulder heads, dressed in a chemise or dress, some with mama voices in the
porcelain head, bent limb baby dolls, 1919 Igodi swivel head dolls, 1921 Bébé
Princesse doll and My Queen doll, 1925+ walking dolls.
