Blond China Head Germany #3 Faded ellipse shape mark

Front view Germany China Head

Front view Germany China Head

I've had as much trouble figuring out the history behind China head dolls as my husband did when he first began studying marbles.

This one really has me stumped. Hope someone can help. It is marked "Germany", which I've read means 1891-1921 for age it has a "3" under that, which I'm guessing is the mold mark.

Above that and to the right is an ellipse shape that I cannot make out. Not sure if it's a Kestner or something else entirely?

I appreciate any help. Thanks!
