Gebrüder Ohlhaver Dolls 1912-1928
Founded by brothers Jonny Paulas Gerhard and Hinrick Ohlhaver in 1912 in Sonneberg, Germany, the owners immortalized their names with the famous Revalo trademark – which is the owners surname spelled backwards phonetically without the silent HH’s.
Ohlhaver’s bisque doll heads came from several porcelain factories; Ernst Heubach (1919 Igodi patent swivel head by Johannes Gotthilf Dietrich), Gebrüder Heubach, Carl Harmus Jr., Mengersgereuth, Porzellanfabrik, Robert Carl whose mark is identified by an X inside a circle in the marking, as shown below.
Gebrüder Ohlhaver sold child toddler character dolls, bent limb baby dolls and Dolly Face dolls from 8 to 28″ tall with jointed composition or kid bodies, of which all are very good quality.
Ohlhaver advertised doll names in 1913 Revalo ball jointed toddler dolls with movable tongue socket or shoulder head, dressed in a chemise or dress, some with mama voices inside the porcelain head, bent limb baby dolls, 1919 Igodi swivel head dolls, 1921 Bébé Princesse doll and My Queen doll, 1925+ walking dolls.
