This is a 20" well made C1940 Hand Made Raggedy Ann Andy Doll Pair that are Fabulous with large hands that I call lobster claw hands because of the prominent thumbs. This doll pair is great! The rag stuffed cotton bodies are appropriately clean with some aging and staining to the face and hands. You can tell these dolls are a pair by their matching blue and brown striped cotton seersucker legs. Also each doll has a wonderful RED felt heart with I Love You embroidered on it (very unusual). Each doll has full thick red wool yarn hair and both dolls are fresh smelling. Both dolls have the large hands and enlarged thumb with some staining and soiling from being held. There is a large stain on Ann's face, the pantaloons match the apron with elasticized red stitching which has stretched, but amazingly the pantaloons waist is still holding up (some of the leg stitching has come apart at the hem). The great blue cotton dress is in very good shape with yellow and pink strung bead print with the sleeve elastic now stretched as you would expect. The apron does not have any age staining or yellowing. Andy has some fading to the blue cotton trousers, all the buttons on his shirt and trousers have decorative stitching (some minor stitching loss to the back of his shirt at the waist), the sailor cap is pinned to the back of his head, has black cotton feet,and has some stitching undone to the back of his left leg showing nylon hose stuffing. Both dolls have Great embroidered features with stitched black felt eyes, red felt nose, individual lashes, heart shaped mouth and eyebrows. They are pretty wonderful!
