. . . but these black cats are not omens of bad luck. The comical character kitty is by Gebruder Heubach. The head is bisque, the composition body is textured to resemble fur, and she wears her original dress. The head is incised on the neck with the square Heubach mark and "3/0" and "9103." Her smaller cousins are all-bisque dolls by Hertwig and Company of Germany. They are each 2.25 inches tall and wear their original crocheted costumes. Any collector would be very lucky to find such cute kitties!
