Dolls are rarely my thing, I find them usually creepy or sentimental. But these two are alive with spirit and deep feeling. Antique African-American items are scare enough, but how often do you see them in this state of preservation? The female doll - I almost want to give them both names, but will leave that to the collector who wins them - is dressed in the bandanna-and-pinafore style house servants in an affluent Southern household: lace trimming, petticoat, beribboned slippers and pantaloons, "jewels." She holds at her side a similarly-dressed babe, also needing a name - but not "Prissy" or "Topsy," please! The little man is likewise duded-up, with a gold-buttoned jersey jacket, foxy plaid pants, taffeta necktie, detachable collar, tricot shirt, buckled leatherette shoes and gold hoop earrings. He is about 11-12 inches tall and 5-1/2 inches wide, his lady about an inch shorter and slimmer. American, circa 1900.
