The Gebruder Heubach firm worked in Lichten, Germany, from 1840-1925. The company is best know for bisque dolls and doll heads.
This adorable Heubach Character Boy Doll, circa 1910, will melt your heart at first glance. He stands 17" in height, with a sweet pouting expression, intaglio blue eyes, molded lid lines, stroke brows, blond soft curly hair and closed mouth. The bisque shoulder head plate rests on a kidskin body with pin-jointed legs and composition, jointed arms and hands. The shoulder plate has a tight hairline crack on the backside extending from the edge to the base of the neck area (see photos - reason for the rubber bands to held hold in place as it needs to be professionally re-attached to the body. He is missing his little finger on his left hand. The should plate is impressed "#5 - Germany - 6688" and stamped in blue tiny numbers "48" I think as it is quite blurred. Rare character boy doll in very good condition. Ready for a vintage outfit and a new loving home.
