A pair of cloth dolls from the late 1800s

This is an example of cloth dolls from the late 1800s to early 1900s.
Both dolls stand 36 cm tall.
Dolls were initially  staffed with a wood chip now degraded in sawdust. Some  new vintage wood chip has been added to fill the gaps prior we obtained these dolls 10 years ago.

Two Kewpie cloth dolls from ca.1940s

In this photograph we have  2  Kewpie cloth dolls. The bigger kewpie to the left stand  52 cm tall. This doll needs some repair as mainly the sawn parts are getting undone.
The Kewpie doll to the right is smaller and stands  32 cm tall. Both dolls were  made in ca.1940s.
Both dolls are overall in their  original condition however the green outfit on the  bigger doll is made in ca. early 1970s. This Kewpie doll wears her original pink shoes.
