We are pleased to offer for sale this pair of strung Ginny Tyrolean Twins that we would date back to the early 1950's. The dolls are just adorable but they are not perfect. Both dolls have been re-wigged at some point (although this is how they came to us and we are fairly sure that the girl's wig is an original Ginny wig as they were sold separately. They both have good coloring with dark, full red lips and vibrant cheek blush, however their painted lashes and eyebrows have oxidized to that greenish yellow. Their blue sleep eyes are clear and bright but they want to stay open so would need help if you wanted to close them. Their bodies are good with no cracks to the hard plastic. They are wearing their original costumes in red felt with embroidered trim and white cotton shirts.. They have white socks and are wearing later red vinyl Ginny shoes. They originally came with center snap ones, but these had been replaced. The girl is wearing her original green felt cap with embroidered trim. The boy is missing his. The outfits are tagged with the early Vogue ink mark tag (See pics). The pair come from a SMOKE FREE home and even with their issues they are still adorable and will look terrific in any vintage collection!
