Pair of 100% Original German Antique Bisque Dolls AM 390 & Goebel in Scottish Costumes
This adorable pair will make an excellent stocking stuffer this upcoming holiday season, either for your favorite doll loving friend, or yourself! We love the presentation of these two dolls as they show the representation of Scottish costumes in two sizes -- the child-sized plaything, and the Minuet scale. Both maintain their wonderful original costumes, with blue glass eyes, and composition bodies. They've both come a long way to be here now, so why don't you be the one to adopt them this holiday season? All original additions to any collection, great or small, are never to be frowned upon!

The bigger doll is a lovely AM 390, with a bisque socket head, glass blue sleep eyes, with painted lashes and tapered brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. He wears his original fur hat, glued down, while his original costume is made of a wool felt in crimson, with plaid sash and plaid kilt, with painted stockings and black shoes. His body is composition, and he stands at 11" tall with the hat. We must note that due to the fragile nature of these original costumes, and the manner in which they are sewn on and custom fitted, the clothes were not removed. Marks: Made in Germany 390 A 7/0 M The little companion doll is a William Goebel, and has a bisque head, on a composition body with jointed hips, and shoulders, with straight knees and bent elbows. She wears her original brown mohair wig, with an adorable velvet and cotton Scottish traditional costume, complete with hat, and plaid scarf, as well as a tunic and plaid stockings, with painted black high heeled shoes. A brooch holds her scarf fastened. She stands at 6" tall. Marks: [William Goebel logo incised; hard to read through the sewn-on costume and glued down wig!]
Condition: The bisque on both dolls is very good, with no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, while the modeling is sweet and cute. The costume are ALL original, but unfortunately have seen some wear. The little Goebel has the costume all intact, while the AM 390 has major tearing to the left sleeve, where the cuffs has been pulled away. He has some chipping and flaking to the hands and fingers, as well as to the tips of both toes. Overall, he has sustained some damage, but it is not uncommon for such early antique all original dolls. They sure bear a great presentation, and will look fabulous in any collection cabinet.
