Porcelain doll

This is a porcelain doll I got from my grandmother. It has something written on the neck but I cannot make out what it says. I am posing pictures with the writing that I magnified to try and read I was hoping someone could help me identify who made the doll and how old it is.

Just a quick idea that might work would be to take a piece of not too think paper and press it against the words then gently rub with the side of a crayon.
Pressing Silly Putty agains the mark might also work.

Maybe put the height in and whether the body is solid or fabric might help in searching.
Also maybe photograph the writing from both different angles and different light sources.
