RARE Early Pair of Lenci Children School Girl and School Boy TWINS Must see
July 8, 2020
School Girl and School Boy. These adorable Lenci Twins deserve to be kept together, having survived nearly 100 years in such wonderful condition. Both are 17-inch model # 300 Lencis sometimes described as the School Girl or Sweater Girl and School Boy or Sweater Boy. Their beautiful features are all-original and unretouched and they have full heads of rich light-brown mohair the girl wearing pigtails (with replacement ribbons) and the boy tousled curls. Dressed in matching pale blue pullover sweaters, these sweeties may be wearing homemade finely-knit sweaters that differ from the sweater styles usually found on the Lenci schoolchildren. The girls sweater is long-sleeved and worn over a Peter Pan collar felt top, while the boys sweater is a V-neck vest worn over a long-sleeved buttoned felt shirt. The girls top is attached by a button to her box-pleated skirt, and underneath she wears felt knickers which are identical to the shorts that the boy is wearing. They have their original leather shoes, but are wearing replacement socks. The girl is wearing a home-made knit beret. These dolls both have light shelf-dust and there is some smudging on their faces which I have not attempted to remove because it doesnt bother me at all. Both sweaters have some small holes in the knit but there is no moth damage to any of the felt. These dolls are amazing and will bring much joy to any Lenci or other doll collection that they join!
