The Heubach porcelain factory was started in 1820 in Lichte, near Wallendorf, Thuringia, Germany. It was purchased by the Christoph and Philipp Heubach in 1840. Subsequent to that they made the bisque heads, all-bisque dolls and figurines that have become much loved and treasured by doll collectors today. For more information on the Gbr. Heubach porcelain factory, please CLICK HERE. Sweet Edelweiss is one of a series of all-bisque dolls made by the Heubach factory in the early 1900's. With her mischievous little side-glancing intaglio eyes and her slightly upturned little smile, she is so obviously just waiting for something exciting to happen -- like a new owner to come along and love her!!
stands approximately 7.25" tall. She has molded hair with a blue
painted headband, socks and brown shoes.
Her brown eyes are of a type known as "intaglio", which means they are painted
eyes, in a slight recess in the face. She is all porcelain, poured in
Seeley's Lady White. Her parts consist of a head/torso and moveable
arms and legs. Once the porcelain pieces are cleaned and high fired to
a temperature of over 2,000 degrees, the doll is then painstakingly painted
and fired several times in order to achieve the perfect skin tones and
detail painting. The porcelain is inscribed with the artist's mark,
and once painted, she is hand signed by the artist. She is then strung
and ready for dressing.
Her costume consists of a
crocheted dress, underpants and hat. Her socks
and shoes are molded in the porcelain, and painted to authentically match
the original antique doll.
