Antique German Doll

Am looking to ID an antique German? bisque boy baby doll? He is only marked 11 on back of neck. Any ideas? Many thanks.

Looks like a Kaiser baby but doesn't have Kaiser mark. Doll is 16" with what appears to be original clothing pants, jacket and hat.

Doll has bisque head and composition body, is jointed.

The original and authentic kaiser baby was produced by Kammar Reinhardt ( K * R ) company. It was produced in 28. 36 and 50 for head size.
Many german companies copied this baby.

Hello - I also have a kaiser look alike just with JDK on it, nothing else. I've done a bit of research and questioning on this, and the concensus of opinion seems to be that early Kaisers were not marked with the 100 mold number, just JDK and a size number.....There's a possibility that yours is still an early Kaiser with nothing but a size number on it.
Also, Heubach made a very similar doll to Kaiser, it's worth researching that...
Hope that helps.....regards from Elizabethkiwi....
