Usually French Santon dolls represent the Provence region in France. But this beautiful matching pair is dressed in the traditional costume of the Alsace region in eastern France. An older man and woman, for the most part made of pottery or clay, with arms and legs partly made of wire to make them bend. The female carries an umbrella and the male is holding a beer mug in his hand. Mint condition. A former owner has left stickers under both their stands with 'Elzas' (dutch for Alsace) in handwriting. Apart from that they are unsigned so we don't know who the maker is of this quality pair of dolls.
