      Your lovely German bisque doll was made by Arthur Schoenau & Hoffmeister Co.
      The Schoenau & Hoffmeister porcelain factory, also known as Porzellanfabrik Burggrub, was located in Burggrub, Germany and was founded by Arthur Schoenau and Carl Hoffmeister in 1901. By 1907 the two partners were in disagreement to the type of porcelain heads for their dolls. Hoffmeister insisted on producing shoulder head dolls, while Schoenau wanted to produce socket head dolls. Unable to resolve there differences Carl Hoffmeister left and Arthur Schoenau became the sole owner. They sold doll heads to other German Companies who put their bodies on dolls and dressed them . Very Nice ! She is called a "Dolly Face" mold Number 1909 and is on composition articulated body so she can pose vs on a leather body . Your head is called a socket head doll . Very pretty
