According to Cieslik’s Encyclopedia of German Dolls the Sonneberger factory stopped making doll heads in 1913, now specializing in producing porcelain locks for beer bottles. About 1920 they appear to have resumed making dolls under
a new owner Edmund Fleischmann. Mr. Fleischmann left the firm in 1930.
