Hermann Steiner of Sonneberg and Neustadt, Germany entered the doll market at the end of the German bisque doll era and began producing dolls around 1920.They are probably best know for their character baby or infant dolls, which were the doll of choice- at that time. A 1921 registered trademark is My Pearl. H. Steiner`s London agent was Boult, Wade & Tennant and in the USA the distributor was Roth, Baitz & Lipsitz.
H. Steiner produced both composition and bisque doll heads -with painted or glass eyes, molded hair or wigged,
a body of cloth, kid or composition.
