Ernst Heubach’s porcelain factory was in Koppelsdorf, Germany, they made bisque doll heads on kid or composition bodies.  Ernst Jr. married Beatrice Marseille, daughter of Armand Marseille and one of E. Heubach’s sculptors, had a brother that worked as a sculptor at Marseille, which may explain why their dolls have similarities to one another.

In 1919 Heubach and Marseilles merged and formed the United Porcelain Factory of Koppelsdorf (Vereinigte Koppelsdorf Porzellanfabrik vorm Armand Marseille and Ernst Heubach).  By 1932 the two companies went their separate ways.  During this union, 1919 to 1932 dolls are often marked with Heubach Koppelsdorf.

Ernst Heubach often used a horse shoe symbol in his mark, in German is called Hufeisen. E. Heubach also made bisque heads for Emil Bauersachs, Cuno & Otto Dressel (Jutta), Johannes Gotthilf Dietich (Igodi), Heinrich Handwerck, Gebrüder Ohlhaver (Revelo), Seyfarth & Reinhardt (dolls with the SUR mark), Adolf Wislizenus and probably others.
