Carl Trautmann doll mark S & H C.T. 7Carl Trautmann Puppenfabrik (Doll Factory) was founded 1884 in Finsterbergen, Thuringia, Germany.  By 1900 they were making ball jointed dolls of the finest quality, in 1904 they also offered mechanical pull string moving dolls and speaking dolls with bellows. 

 

Some bisque doll heads were made for Trautmann by Simon & Halbig and as shown above right, include their initials S & H C.T. 7 along with various size numbers.

 

In 1906 the Trautmann Doll Factory moved to Catterfelder, Germany near Waltershausen and changed it's name to Catterfelder Puppenfabrik.

 

It's presumed JD Kestner now supplied the bisque heads for Catterfelder who made small dolls, bisque socket head ball jointed dolls in black or white, bisque shoulder head dolls with kid bodies and accessories; stockings & shoes.  By 1911 they also made celluloid painted hair baby dolls with sleep eyes.

 

Catterfelder is probably best known for their bisque head character baby dolls.
