Simon & Halbig Twin Children in Original Clothing #196-11 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
What a fabulous set of twin dollhouse children, in their original clothing, and to have two exactly alike is such a rarity. Made in Germany by the well-known firm of Simon & Halbig c. 1880's. Sweet delicate faces with wonderful little expressions. Great modeling of the heads with painted blue eyes and short blond curly hair on each. Their body is cloth with bisque heads, forearms and legs. These darling twin children are 4 1/2" high. The original clothing is off-white pique trimmed with white and red embroidered ribbon with hand stitched red trim at the neckline. Underneath are pantaloons which peek out from under the garments. Their bisque legs include darling white molded boots with painted mustard yellow stockings. One child has arms straight down, while the other child's arms are slightly bent giving each a unique pose. Wonderful condition on both dolls; the clothing shows aging in the back and there are a few rubs on the stockings. No breaks or hairlines. This is a rare and fabulous find. They are also pictured with a small table 2 inches high which is sold separately.
