German Souvenir Dolls

Hitty Friends

This is a cute pair of dolls recently sold on ebay.  They are carved of wood and said to be German.  The dolls are about 4" tall.  The clothes are glued or nailed on and without undressing them, I can't show you how they are jointed.

I did fold back a sleeve and discovered that there were tiny slits in the torso and limb pieces.  A piece of cardboard was inserted into the slits and glued in place.

Judging from the inexpensive jointing method and the fact that the clothes aren't removable, I would say they are souvenir dolls made for the tourist trade.  No matter....they are really adorable dolls.
