This is a fine 6.5" tall circa 1900 pair of Mexican cloth dolls, a man and a woman in indigenous costumes.
The gentleman is dressed in a tan leather suit consisting of pants, vest and jacket with metallic trim and tiny bead buttons. He has a striped shirt and pink bow tie. His shoes are black leather. His hair is made from thread over black fabric. Facial features and delicately formed and have embroidered details including a thin mustache. Note the detailed hands with individual fingers.
The lady has the same degree of detail in hands and face. She is dressed in a red and tan skirt with beaded decorations, a lace trimmed blouse, petticoat, pantaloons and white leather shoes. Her scarf is shown here tied around her waist, but I have properly rearranged in now to cross in back and form side straps and belt over her blouse. Her long braided hair is made from thread. She has a beaded necklace and earrings.
Condition: Very slight wear to the tips of noses and chins.
Amazing detail in dolls of this small size and made from cloth.
