Gebruder Hebach Elspeth doll, 7 1/2"

G. Heubach all bisque Elspeth doll mold 10490, 7 1/2" tall

The Heubach family bought an established porcelain factory around 1843 in Lichte, Thuringia, Germany, where they were soon producing porcelain figurines.  About 1910 they began making bisque character socket or shoulder head dolls, either molded hair or wigged, sleep eyes or their famous painted intaglio eyes.  One secret to Heubach's success was the location of an Art School for artists and sculptors located near their factory, some of the artists names are: Holwein, Krieger, Niemeyer, Wera vonBartels, Zeiller and Zitzmann - whose initials maybe included in the doll marking. 

Gebrüder Heubach doll marks; the word Heubach inside a square or quadrant, a Sunburst symbol, a triangle with initials ALS, a cloverleaf symbol.

Note: German doll makers Gebrüder Heubach & Gustav Heubach both used the doll mark GH.
