Today we are offering this lovely set of Shirley White Dolls. They are Leif Erikson and his mother. Both dolls are skillfully sculpted from clay and have painted faces. Their blond mohair wigs suit their coloring perfectly. They are both wearing buck knives in their holders. Their outfits are sensational, made of wool and leather. The mom measures approx. 11.5" tall and Leif is approx. 9" tall. Both have tags sewn into their outfits by Shirley White.
Leif's reads: " Leif Erikson as a child ~ c. 980 A.D. ~ Made by Shirley White 1981 His mother's reads: " Thiodhild Jorunsdottir ~ Wife of Erik "The Red" Thorvaldson ~ c 980 A.D. ~ Made by Shirley White 1981.
These dolls are just wonderful and would make a nice addition to any doll collection.
