Here is a 7.5" pair of cloth dolls that have tags saying made in Italy. This is a very rarely seen little "fetish" dolls were made to be hung in homes and autos in both the USA and Europe. Note the felt loops sewn on their backs. They were considered good luck tokens. The boy has a silver and black tag that says Carla Creazioni Firenze. Many people refer to these as Lenci dolls. I am dating them to the 1940's. This pair came from The J.L. Hudson Co. as tag is on front of girl's dress. Her feather as broken off the stem and is missing. His is broken and bent over but still there. These could easily be replaced. This pair is very clean and the felt and clothing is not faded but there is some darkening on the cheeks especially the girl. There is a little line coming up one wide of the neck on the girl, maybe a thin crack in the molded material. I am not sure how to clean the darkening area so selling as is. Please see all the pictures for details. They are from a smoke free and pet free environment.
