I love unusual dolls! This remarkable pair is certainly unusual. They are called chip carved dolls. Dating them by the fabric in the woman's costume, they appear to be from the 1930's Great Depression era. She is 9 1/2" tall, he is a little over 9" tall. Perfect cabinet size.

Chip or spoon carving is a traditional folk art where knives and chisels are used leaving a rough hewn object with sharp angles. This pair was obviously carved by the same person considering the style, wood type, patina and similar features. He is fully jointed, even his neck. She is more of a stump doll with carved folded arms and flared long skirt. She also has a colorful cotton print slip, woolen skirt, taffeta bonnet and hand knit shawl. Their faces are very pinched and serious, solemn in solemn times.

If you are a lover of wooden dolls, or the unusual, this pair will be right up your alley! Imagine them standing as contrast in a collection of Grodnertal. How interesting!!
