Metal Head Doll Metal Head Doll

Metal Head Dolls - Germany was the main manufacturer of metal head dolls in Europe during the early 1900s. The familiar tin heads were cut and stamped from sheet metal and then welded together. These inexpensive pleasant faced tin heads were sold separately usually as a replacement for the easily broken doll heads made of bisque or china. This explains why metal heads are found on various body types known to have had bisque heads.

Busehow & Beck as early as 1890 made metal doll heads trademarked "Minerva" that became the standard. Alfred Heller registered his metal head dolls "Diana" and Karl Standfuss registered is doll heads "Juno". Giebeler-Falk of New York City made aluminum metal head dolls they called "Gie-Fa" from 1918-1921. The Gie-Fa doll had a wooden body.
