doll

Many German doll manufacturers offered bisque-head dolls similar to the French bebe dolls made by well-known Paris companies like Jumeau, Steiner, and Bru. This dolly face, German doll maker J. D. Kestner Jr.'s mold No. 171, represents one of the more popular dolls offered by the company. The doll in an 18-inch size appeared as "Daisy" in the popular Lettie Lane paper-doll series in "Ladies' Home Journal, and Daisy was offered to little girls as a premium in 1911.
