Both beautifully constructed colorful costumes feature fine details such as excellent quality materials, and hand-embroidered accents. Completing their outfits are white cotton shirts and black felt shoes. The white portions of their outfits have discolored with age. The dolls are all cloth and measure 8" tall. Their pressed, painted felt faces are painted in a sweetly expressive manner with side glancing eyes. Their hair is blonde mohair. Both dolls in very good condition and in all-original,costumes.
