    Little Moritz, produced circa mid-to-late 1910s through the early 1920s, is enrobed in a ruffed, resplendent ensemble. Seated atop either a tree bole or a ligneous plinth, he is, dissimilar to a piece referenced in the Theriault's virtual catalogue of collectors' books, unmarked. Even pieces with mould numbers have not been, to my knowledge, attributed to a specific factory.

    This beloved German comic strip and storybook character, albeit in the likeness of a Schafer and Vater-style piece is, neither pictorially nor textually, referenced and attributed to their kilns. Hertwig, I do believe, produced the articulated mignonette Max and Moritz dolls.
