They were known for the raised stork figure at the top of the back body. This doll measures 14 inches and has a perfect bisque head with sleep eyes and a bent limb body that aside from some scratches and marks it is in very good condition. These bodies were noted for the oil-tempered steel springs that attached each arm and leg joint. There is one spring missing on the left leg and it is elastic strung. The fingers and toes have great detail as the biskoline was easy to mold and very hardy
The trademarks were registered in 1913 in U.S. In 1914-1915, patents were issued for stringing hollow-jointed bent-limb baby-type bodies with metal springs.
