Pair of Antique Primitive Clothespin Dolls Carved Legs 5" & 4 5/8"
Both dolls are dressed in tan, green and red paper. They have an over jacket, an over skirt and pants, but the articles of clothing vary the color. The pictures showing the back of the doll will show the colors best as the front has pretty much faded to beige. The faces are hand drawn in pencil, the arms are wire. One dolls wears a hat, but it is partly missing. The other has a long braid in the back.
It is hard to say when these were made, but the wood is hard and very early that would allow for the intricate carving. My guess would be early 1900s. The condition is consistent with the age like the fading of the paper I mentioned and I noticed one of the dolls with the very tiny feet has a chip on the front.
