American Black Folk Dolls
This pair of American vintage folk dolls shows great character on their needle sculpted faces. Their hair is made from white wool. The man also has a white beard and white brows giving him the look of an elderly gentleman. A feature that really gives both of their faces character is the teeth that are stitched on their mouths. The man wears a felt hat and holds a wooden cane in his right hand and a chicken under his other arm. His trousers are flannel with suspenders. His rough cotton shirt has a bandana at the neck. His lady wears a red bandana around her head. Her head is turned slightly toward the right. Her green print cotton skirt is topped with a checked apron. Her blouse is blue and white with a woven plaid jacket. In her right arm, she carries an umbrella and a tow sack in her other arm. They are all cloth and very well made. Their stands are constructed from pieces of asphalt roofing. The pair measure 9 ½” tall and are in perfect condition.
