This unusual pair of Chinese dolls were made with wire bodies covered with fabric padding and then silk clothing. Their heads, lower arms and feet are made from some kind of composition material and then painted. Because of their wire construction, their arms, legs, and bodies etc can be carefully repositioned. The feet are wired together to provide a more stable is a theory which frankly does not always work well.

Each doll is approx 9.5 inches tall in standing position. They are in good condition considering the age and use...a few nicks in the paint, rips in the clothing etc. This pair of dolls have been together for a long time and I will not separate them.
