This Stunning 21” Antique German Bisque Head Doll was made by the Simon & Halbig Co. on commission for the Kammer Reinhardt Company. Because Germany is not incised on back of the head, it would have been made circa 1890s since the US required the country of origin to be indicated after 1900. Many dolls of this era had no mold #, as this doll, which has only the size #53. However, it is likely they used the same mold as the #117 doll head as it is nearly identical and a favorite among collectors with the distinctive pouty mouth appearance and enchanting child-like expression.
