doll head

1850-1875

Few of the companies that made china heads labeled their products with identifying logos or marks. Years later, because doll collectors could not always identify the maker of a doll, they named their dolls according to their hairstyles. Some styles names derived from the famous individuals who made the style popular, people like Dolley Madison, Jenny Lind, Queen Victoria, and Mary Todd Lincoln. Other terms were more a description of the style itself- high brow, low brow, spill curls, and curly top. This particular hairstyle, made famous by Lewis Carroll's main character, is known as Alice in Wonderland.
