Hard to find pair of tiny aprox 4.25 little Mignonette dolls in their original costumes. I'm not willing to break up the set - because they've been together for over 100 years! I'm not sure if they are French or German made for the French market. They have very pretty almond shaped, blue glass set eyes. They have bisque open socket heads on rare to find, tiny 5 piece composition bodies that are only about 3.5 tall.
The girl's wig has fancy side braids on the sides. The boys wig is a blondish color - his hat is glued to his head so I can't take a pic of the wig.
Their outfits are original to them - and though they have signs of age - some fading and fraying, etc... The boy is missing part of his foot. I've always stood him on a piece of black modeling clay that I shaped like his other shoe.
I lost the piece of clay - but can be probably be found online or at your neighborhood WalM.. it was super easy to mold a little piece to look like the front of his other shoe. The bisque heads are in perfect condition. The item "RARE 4 MIGNONETTE SET ALL ORIGINAL OUTFIT ANTIQUE Germany French Glass Eyes" is in sale since Sunday, March 14, 2021.
