Antique Fritz Bartenstein Two Faced Doll Bisque Head Deutsche Reich 248762
You are looking at an antique Fritz Bartenstein two-faced doll. Her head is bisque and legs and arms are composition. She has here original strings which pull her head around. I gently pulled hers and she still has a loud squeak! The head moves about 1/4 around with string (can easily be moved manually), but I didn't want to tug too tightly. As seen in pic, there is a hairline crack that runs along her "happy" face. Her crying face is fine. Very detailed and intricate hand painting.

Her eyes appear to be glass. She comes with the clothes shown in the pics, but I don't know if they are her original clothes. They were found packed together.

Here is some information I obtained from the internet. "Fritz Bartenstein Dolls 1880 -1905 Germany". Fritz Bartenstein an inventor and doll factory owner was first employed in the doll industry at Schoenau Porcelain doll factory in 1864.

By 1880 he filed his first patent for a multi-faced doll with a pull string inside the head that turned the faces housed inside a hood and a second string inside the torso that simultaneously made the doll cry Mama, as shown in the two patent drawings on left. Doll socket heads are made of wax, composition or bisque with two doll faces laughing an another crying, in white dolls or black or a white face and a black face.
