Recknagel rabbit, bisque gooly eye doll mold 47

Theodor Recknagel bisque head googly eye bunny doll, composition jointed body, doll mold 47.

Theodor Recknagel who was born in 1860 and died in 1930, began his porcelain factory in 1886, which was located in Alexandrienthal, near Thüringia, Germany. 

Recknagel doll production did not begin until around 1893.  It's believed by researchers the RA or sometimes reversed AR found in Recknagel's doll mark stands for Recknagel Alexandrienthal, also, Recknagel's four digit doll mold numbers (19XX) do not appear to co-inside with actual dates, as one might think. 

Recknagel dolls can be of the finest quality to rather course bisque.
