Many of Ernst Heubach`s later dolls have much in common with those produced by Armand Marseille, which is not surprising as the two companies merged in 1919, on the marriage of Heubach`s daughter Beatrix to Armand Marseille`s son, to form the Koppelsdorfer Porzellanafabrik.
Heubach, like Armand Marseille
, aimed his
products at a mass market rather than just the wealthy.His
dolls were affordable to most and were meant to be loved and played with, unlike some of the more expensive French dolls which were known as Sunday dolls, as playing with them was only allowed on special supervised occasions.Ernst Heubach did not produce complete dolls, but supplied many companies with heads; among his
customers were Cuno and Otto Dressel, Adolph Wislizenus, Seyfarth and Reinhardt
and A Luge and Co.
