Amazing personality can be achieved by the art of needle sculpting, evidenced by this pair of cloth dolls from the company of the artist Bernard Ravca. Stockinette was manipulated and then painted to create detailed faces. These dolls are clearly labeled "Made in France", which would date them between 1924 and 1939. The detailed costumes denote the two as French peasants – her tag reads "Bourguignonne" and his reads "Picard". Accessories include a walking stick for him and she carries a strand of flax ready for spinning. The overall condition of the two is quite good, with just fading to the fronts of both dolls. Note that these dolls are shown on stands – something rarely seen on this site. The stands are impressed "Kimport Dolls" and are rarities in their own right.
