Gotha, Germany in 1889. By 1908 Mr. Quendt had left the firm, by 1918 S & Q
became part of the reorganized Bing conglomeration called Concentra.
In 1918 doll production was limited to bisque
heads made for other Bing members such as Kämmer &
Reinhardt or Welsch & Company.

found on the back of dolls heads, plus the doll mold numbers shown below.
They made Character Baby and Dolly faced bisque head dolls.
