Gebruder Heubach is one of my favorite doll manufacturers. Masters of sculpture, the Gebruder Heubach factory at Lichte, Thuringia, Germany, had a long standing relationship with the school for sculptors located there and so were able to employ many of those talented artists and sculptors. Many dolls were cast in the same mold, but no two dolls ever look exactly alike. One of the smallest of the intaglio painted eye solid bisque character heads, this little 6" tall pouty baby boy doll is finely molded with the square Heubach mark incised on the back of the neck of the socket head. He has been given flocked hair, which is fuzzy(or stubbly) to the touch, and is placed on a five-piece composition body of rather poor quality. Probably originally purchased in his original chemise, ca. 1909, some Grandma or Mama lovingly hand made his Christening gown and petticoat. He is shown on page 22 of "The Art of Gebruder Heubach" by Jan Foulke, published in 1980. I purchased this doll several years ago because he had an unbelievable resemblance to my youngest grandson at a similar age. He is a rare find in excellent condition. Thank you for visiting. Please email me if I can help you in any way.
