German dolls were made circa the 1870's to 1930. One
of the largest manufacturers was Simon & Halbig. They made
heads for many other companies. The German doll faces were more
realistic than the French, very lovely children were a specialty.
They were more plainly dressed, more realistic. The eyes were
of blown glass, quite a few had sleep eyes of flirty eyes, open
mouths with teeth and tongues. Ears were not generally pierced.
