2 new girls


Sweet face!!!

These 2 wonderful girls were having a nap on the sidewalk in front of a neighbour's in a donation bin. My heart skipped and I embraced them both in 1 big hug and took them home.  they are extremely well made both, with amazing details, craftsmanship, both have painted face on molded material and both have composition arms and legs, well, the black hair doll I am not sure it may be early plastic, or something else. They were both played with perhaps for more than a generation or 2, and suffered both a partial haircut.  other than that, a bit tattered but ever so charming! 

Once I have made a good series of photos, I will most likely post them to sell on my Etsy store!

Did you know that your second doll is a Lenci doll? I have one, too, that belonged to my mother. The doll was given to my mother to dress and resell for a fundraiser when she was in her 60s, but she decided to keep the doll. The doll came to me after my mother died in 1994. Perhaps I will do a post about that doll. A Lenci doll is the main character in a book by Dare Wright called The Lonely Doll. I just happened upon your blog today while following links from another blog.

Thanks for letting me know am, I will do a search on that. Maybe more special than I thought!
