Johannes Daniel Kestner, Jr. is by far the most well-known of all the German doll makers and should  probably be regarded as the "Father of the Waltershausen Doll Industry," since  he was most certainly  the first in the area. Kestner was more than likely the only company to produce both heads and  bodies, thereby producing its own complete doll. Of all the  German character babies produced,  Kestner' "Hilda" has captured the hearts of collectors and reproduction artists through the ages. The  Kestner company subsequently rode out  World War I and the Great Depression and finally merged with Kammer & Reinhardt in 1930.
