China Heads

I love "China Head Dolls" Recently I have been doing a bit of research about them, Well I was surprised and delighted to read"China Head Dolls can be either female or male . I had no idea there were male china heads.


China head dolls were made by various companies from 1840-1940. They were a popular toys for children.

China-head dolls are named China-head because their head, neck, and the tops of the shoulders are created from china. Also their hands and feet are created from china, Their bodies are created from fabric which then was stuffed , Also their bodies were made of kid, Some were also carved wood. The china pieces have holes for sewing the appendages onto the body.

china-head dolls were made to represent women rather than children. Most have molded hair or have a wig over a solid bald dome. Their sizes range from a tiny 3" to a big and probably heavy 40" tall. Many of the china head dolls are unmarked, or may have a mold number; it can be impossible to pinpoint the manufacturer, so most dolls are described and identified by their hairstyles.
