With the development of chromolithography, in the late 1800s, doll makers appropriated the technology to create life-like faces for their dolls. Albert Bruckner, a lithographer by trade, made a cloth mask with a lithographed face to apply to doll heads. A number of his dolls sold through E. I. Horsman as part of its Babyland Rag Doll series.
