This is a nice pair of antique 4.5 and 4.75 inch tall German doll house dolls made by Alt Beck & Gottschalck circa 1880s. They are both blonds of the same model but the one with blue boots is slightly taller. They both are complete with original bodies and limbs. They come with some original clothing, including a semi sheer shift dress, petticoat and skirt - enough to dress one and then leave it to the new owner to come up with clothing for the other.
Condition is good. Not chips, cracks or repairs of replaced parts. The one with blue boots does have a small hole in the cloth body in back just below the shoulder plate edge, which I have stuffed with a dab of cotton to stop the leak of sawdust.
They would be charming if dressed as a boy girl pair, which with this ambiguous short hairstyle is entirely appropriate.
