German dolls by Hedler
These dolls are handmade artist dolls from the 1970's, by doll manufacturer Hedler in Arnstadt, East Germany (former DDR). Many Hedler dolls were inspired by the dolls of the miniature town 'Mon Plaisir' of Princess Auguste Dorothea of Schwarzburg-Arnstadt (1666–1751).
A well dressed lady and her sailor type companion. They have cloth over wire frame bodies, stockinette faces. Their eyes are tiny black beads, eyebrows and eyelashes are painted on, their mouths are stitched on. They have cut-out leather hands. Very good condition for both dolls.
