This valuable reference book concerns itself with the beautiful doll heads produced by the Simon & Halbig porcelain factory in Grafenhain near Ohrduf, Thuringen, Germany, from the 1880s to the 1920s. These beautiful, high quality dolls heads are a close second choice to the heads made by the J.D. Kestner company, also of Germany. Such well-known names in the German and French doll industry as Kammer & Reinhardt, C.M. Bergmann, Heinrich Handwerck, Jumeau and Roullet & Decamps purchased doll heads from Simon & Halbig and attached them to their own bodies.
Simon & Halbig was known for excellent sculpting of their doll heads, and the high quality of their bisque (porcelain). Among collectors, a Simon & Halbig head, regardless of the maker of the body, makes that doll a Simon & Halbig creation. Consequently, the doll heads illustrated in this book on another doll maker's bodies could all come under the designation "Simon & Halbig".
The author's extensive research, as well as the 539 black-and-white and 26 color illustrations make this an invaluable reference work for the serious collector. Included here are chapters on their well-known dolly faces, character dolls, all-bisques, toddlers and lady dolls. Studying the extensive selection of faces and memorizing the mold numbers will enable a collector to identify a Simon & Halbig doll from a distance. All this and more makes this compilation of mold numbers, dates and marks the most complete and up-to-date reference book available to collectors on Simon & Halbig doll heads.From the Back Cover:
