According to the resource, "Doll Makers and Marks" these twin child dolls were made by Gebruder Kuhnlenz. They are 5" tall and just in pristine condition, all the way down to their metallic little belts. There is a number 13 on the back of each child's head--a boy and a girl--and another symbol off to the left that looks like an 'S' or a 5. They have a tag sewn to each of them which seems to be an inventory number. A store or a museum or an auction--I don't know. Their glass eyes are brown with no whites, which gives them a rather doe-like expression. Their lips are pursed--hers more than his.
The feet have small paint misses on the heels, and the hands are undamaged. I tried to roll back the sleeves to show the dolls' hands but the sleeves wouldn't stay back. The clothing cannot be removed. The hat on the little girl is lovely and is old, but it isn't original. In fact, I don't think they ever had head covering.
A truly special little pair of twins. The doll stands will come with them. Thank you for checking in at my shop. Please ask any questions.
