This is a wonderful pair of vintage Grecon toddler or children miniature dolls. Grecon Dolls were the invention of Margarete Cohn, who registered her Grecon trademark in 1920 - the first miniature dolls were made by her in 1927. In 1936, she fled Nazi Germany, eventually registering the Grecon name in England in 1940. She initially made all her dolls herself, but eventually contracted workers to help in their production. The dolls are made using a wire frame to form the body with a wire loop at the top to which the head was attached. The wire frame is stuffed with cotton batting and then wound with thread or yarn. Each of these is dressed in a felt outfit that has a Grecon Made in England tag sewn onto the back. I believe that one is a boy and the other is a girl. One way of dating these Grecon Dolls is by examining their shoes - I think that these have what are called “flat peanut feet”, which would date them to the early to mid 50s up to the late 50s. Each measures 2 3/8” in height and is in very clean condition - these have been very well preserved. Please note that they are not that steady on their feet, but they do stand with a bit of adjustment. I believe that this is probably a brother and sister. A lot of work went into making these small dolls - great for dollhouse dolls, or just very cute collectible display dolls!
