Beautiful very rare antique wax over slit head twins in fantastic original condition. Dating to approx 1840. Both measure just over 17 heigh, their outfits are identical consisting of 5 layers, long knickers, chemise, woolen underskirt, calico under dress and a delicate shear cotton over dress, one has a pink ribbon sash and hair ribbons the other blue. I do not think the clothing has ever been removed from them and I have not undressed them. Their eyes are both pupil less glass eyes and their hair is all original mohair that has been inserted into the slit on their heads and still retains their lovely ringlets. The doll with pink ribbons has green leather arms and the blue one tan leather arms both with no damage. Their body’s are obviously fabric and there is no leaking sawdust from either of them. They really are super and very rare to find twins, I will list what faults I can find on each doll individually and you are free to ask for more photos. Pink ribbon doll, tiny hole 1/4 cm to one side of dress which is unnoticeable really, maybe some hair missing just below the ribbon at the back of on her hair, ribbons faded but still have colour. Blue ribbon doll – small nick in fabric to back of dress (not really noticeable) blue ribbon split at the back that could easily be sewn. Ribbon frayed at side of waist, one eyebrow missing, easily can be drawn back on. Tiny little dent to 1st layer of wax to her chin again not really noticeable. I have never removed their clothes so cannot garentee what their bodies are like but judging by the rest of both of the dolls the body’s will be perfect and they feel just fine and very robust with no leaking sawdust.
