Lovely Pair Early Dollhouse Chinas 5" & 7.5" c.1880-1890 -- Great For Cabinet!
These beautiful little chinas are a great choice for the lover of dollhouses, and the little dolls that go inside! These girls come to you from c. 1880-1890, and come in rare sizes of 5" and 7.5", and each in their 100% original antique costumes! They are in beautiful condition too, and are bound to look great in your cabinet. I have a wide variety of dolls in my personal collection, but I do have a soft spot for dollhouse miniatures -- many glass cabinets can be found in my house, filled with these beauties and arranged in little scenes and environments. They are endless fun and great conversation starters, which is why I am proud to put dolls such as they up for sale! Priced affordably, I won't be surprised if they're not here for long...

First, we have the smaller 5" china girl. She has a glazed china shoulder head, in a pale milky white and smooth glossy finish. Delicately painted features with black brows and eyes, blushed lips, and soft curls in a short style. She wears her original costume, starting with a mint green silk cape, with black velvet trim and button loop closure. Underneath goes a cream lace dress and matching slip and pantaloons underneath. Note that her undergarments are dress are sewn on, and we don't want to compromise it by removal! Only the cape comes off currently. Parian hands and feet with brown short heeled shoes. Marks: -None-
Second, we have the bigger 7.5" china girl. She has a glazed china shoulder head, in a pale milky white and smooth glossy finish. Painted features with black brows and blue eyes, blushed lips, and soft curls in a short style. Her original costume starts with a cream cotton ensemble with black plaid print, and pink soutache. A white cotton half slip goes underneath with embroidery and lovely lace trim. Underneath also goes a white cotton full slip with lace trim, and matching pantaloons underneath. Again, her undergarments are dress are sewn on, and we don't want to compromise it by removal! Only her ensemble and half slip are removable. Parian hands and china feet with brown short heeled shoes. Her original body is made with a fabric with random letter print. Marks: -None-
Condition: Both are excellent condition. Heads are free of hairlines, restoration, cracks, chips, or damage. Both faces are clean of major peppers or specks. Note that the magnification on the photos is much more than one would actually see the doll in your hand; so any possible flaws are not noticeable as they are in the photos -- remember, these girls are tiny. The bodies and costumes are 100 % original, and the limbs are great too. Overall, a sweet pair with no excuses.
