In 1864, Christopher Hertwig, Johann and Benjamin Beyerman founded ‘Hertwig & Company’ going on to produce gorgeous porcelain dolls and earthenware objects from their Germany based factory until 1941.
When travelling through the USA, we stumbled upon this magical collection that had resided in the same family for many years. For that reason, we decided to purchase them all, in the hopes of keeping them together.
A truly gorgeous porcelain doll with felt Eskimo clothes and hat/hood, painted shoes with Germany sign on shoe base similar to Hertwig logo.
As well as character porcelain dolls, Hertwig also created animals.
Jointed arms and legs.
