Recknagel doll mold 47, bisque googly eye doll dressed as a bunny rabbit

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

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 marks stands for Recknagel Alexandrienthal.

Also, Recknagel's four digit doll mold numbers (19XX) do not appear to coincide with actual dates of production. 

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