“Marion” Pet Name German Glazed Porcelain China Shoulder Head by Hertwig

This china shoulder head, circa the early 20th century, was created in Germany by the Hertwig and Company Porcelain Factory. These dolls are often called "Pet Name" china heads as they have molded names on the front shoulder plates. This doll has black hair and blue eyes with a slightly turned head. Her molded bodice decoration, with the gilt decoration, includes a Peter Pan collar with a tie and the name "Marion." The back of the shoulder plate is labeled, "Patent Appl For//Germany." The doll head is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some roughness on the inside of the front and back inside rim of the shoulder plate. These areas are not visible on the glazed side. The black hair paint has a few small areas of wear. The head is 5 ½ inches in height and measures 4 1/2 inches from shoulder to shoulder.
