Calling all Doll Detectives
Sue L. wants to know
This 13inch doll is made of paper Mache. The face is painted, with molded hair. He is marked on his back with a rounded triangle. Inside the triangle, appears to be ECCO. Under the triangle is the number 30.
The German Doll Encyclopedia 1800-1939 by Jurgen & Marianne Cieslik page 64,65 & 351, attributes the letters ECCO inside a diamond with the Eckstein& Co., Sonnenberg.
Coleman volumn 2, page 376, points out the factory did make "long limbed dolls"and they were made out of Papier-mache dolls.
