Two handmade folk art dolls, wrapped wire dolls in fabulous clothing, pair of ladies in waiting. This delightful set of dolls have wrapped stockinette heads with ornate silk and lace clothing. Both ladies' dresses include trains. Perhaps one is the bride, and the other is the maid of honor? One wears knickers and three petticoats under her dress, the other wears knickers and two petticoats under her dress. Their hair is made of braided cotton yarn or heavy embroidery thread. The lighter haired one is carrying flowers. I cannot make out what the dark haired lady carries; it may be a purse. She wears a wonderful necklace of tiny steel cut beads. This lady also has her hands wrapped in satin thread, so she appears to be wearing gloves, and her shoes or boots are delineated by color. These are so charming! and ingenious in the use of materials. They will fit in your dollhouse or display wonderfully in your cabinet. Both dolls are in excellent condition with minor staining and melting to the silk. The lighter haired lady is is 4.75 inches tall, and with her train, she is 7.25 inches. The dark haired lady is 5.25 inches tall, and her train makes her 9 inches.
