A lovely pair of Door Hope dolls from the Shanghai mission of the early 1900's, this bride and groom are in original condition with some fading of the gentleman's under tunic which can be seen only when lifting his long jacket. Both dolls retain their head dresses, with that of the bride being quite spectacular in its colorful pom-pom height. She has a detailed carved bun on the back of her head, and an ornate silk costume with hand-sewn bead adornments and embroidery. The groom is 11 1/2" tall while the bride is 11" and both dolls have nicely carved, wooden heads and hands.
