As I have noted previously on this blog, I collect antique dolls as well as bathing beauties, and I especially like German and French all-bisque dolls. So this pretty pair of adorable all-bisque dolls wearing their molded bathing suits is a "two-fer" for me! Big brother is 4.5 inches tall with loop-jointed arms. He is of excellent bisque and is beautifully decorated. The tiny hand-painted anchor on his swimsuit adds a jaunty nautical touch.
His slightly smaller sister is 4.25 inches high and she is of the same superb quality. Neither doll is marked, but they are certainly of the finest German workmanship.
