“Bertha” Pet Name German Glazed Porcelain China Shoulder Head by Hertwig!
A lovely china shoulder head, circa the early 20th century, 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 is named "BERTHA"!
This doll has black hair and blue eyes with a slightly turned head. Her molded bodice decoration includes a Peter Pan collar with a tie and the name "Bertha." 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 back lower right corner of the shoulder plate. The head is 5 ½ inches in height and measures 4 1/2 inches from shoulder to shoulder.
A wonderful china head to display or make into a lovely doll to dress!
