The Dressel family has been making dolls in Sonneberg, Germany, since the 18th century. The company was founded by Johann Philipp Dressel in 1757, and it has been passed down from generation to generation ever since. In 1873, two of Johann Philipp's descendants, Cuno and Otto Dressel, founded the Cuno & Otto Dressel Factory. The company specialized in making bisque dolls, which were a popular type of doll at the time. Dressel dolls were known for their high quality and realistic details.
Dressel dolls were sold all over the world, and they were particularly popular in the United States. The company's largest American client was Butler Brothers, a major department store chain. Dressel continued to make dolls until the end of World War II. The company was forced to close down after the war due to the destruction of its factories.
