The Schildkröt brand was created in Bavaria in 1873 by Friedrich Bensinger, the Rheinische Gummi- und Celluloid Fabrik was the main producer of celluloid in Germany.


Most of the celluloid dolls produced in Europe were made in Germany. Probably the best-known factory was the Reinische Gummi- und Celluloid-fabrik, founded in 1873. Products made by this company can generally be recognized by the famous turtle brand on a diamond. In addition to producing celluloid dolls, this company also made celluloid heads for other manufacturers, exactly as porcelain factories made and sold biscuit heads.


Manufacturers who assembled dolls from components made by Rheinische Gummi-und Celluloid-Fabrik included Kammer and Reinhardt, C. and O. Dresses and J.D. Kestner.
