C.1960 Made in Japan Porcelain Dolls - Little Boy & Girl Dressed in Green
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: A pair of porcelain, white bisque with a bit of colored glaze, stand up Carnival-type dolls - a boy and a girl. Both pieces feature the same green coloring and while both children have blonde hair, the boy carries a chalkboard while the girl carries a doll.
CONDITION: Both pieces have an aged appearance - looks like the result of too much washing over the years. The BOY has some additional sugary-like stuff on the bottom of his feet. He might have been glued to something and this is the residue. A portion of the stuff did break off before I photoed so a bit of cleaning might yield the feet intact BUT, then again, maybe the stuff is there to hide a break or chip or something. As it is now, the stuff is hard to see when the doll is standing upright so maybe the boy should just be left as is. The GIRL has a small flea bite on her left foot at the bottom, again, not seen when the figure is standing.
HALLMARKS: MADE IN JAPAN at the back of the neck on each figure.
SIZE: Both stand about 3-11/16"; width is 1-1/2" approx.
FINAL COMMENTS: A terribly cute pair!
