Two dolls from Lebanon that go very well together, made in the same style and size and came as a pair. On the left a lady representing a Lebanese princess according to the label on her stand. Her costume was worn by married noblewomen upto the late 19th century, specified here as the year 1860. Her tall cone shaped headdress is known as a tantour or shihabeeyen and is covered with a long pale yellow veil. The tantour is decorated with sequins, of which some are missing. She is wearing a pair of trousers under her skirt. A paper label is attached to the front of her stand and reads 'Lebanese Princess 1860'. The male is dressed more modestly, his label only reads 'Lebanese'. The red of his shoes has rubbed off on the trousers a bit. As often happens with parts made of rubber the arms of both dolls have decayed over time. What's left is hanging loose in the sleeves. Their heads and feet are made of painted composition or clay. Their bodies and legs are wood. Despite the flaws still an interesting pair.
