Wow! What a pick here nearly matching but we have 2 different variations of very early 1900's top doll manufacturers who have made again nearly identical dolls. Both are 11" tall, both are made of celluloid/paper mache with stuffed cloth bodies dressed elaborately in the german attire common a century ago. The boy is called a minerva junge no. 2, 26 and features the very rare helmet symbol above the word germany on the back of his head. The girl's marking is an early and hard to see etching in the paper mache under her wig. The symbols for rheinische gummi (schildkröt) or for kestner could match it but we are not certain without removing the entire wig. She is also marked 9 below. They again are a wonderful pair they look very similar yet the boy is a celluloid only painted head with celluloid hands and a stuffed cloth body. The girl is celluloid/paper mache head with a wig of braided blond mohair and her arms, legs and body are stitched and stuffed cloth. You see the difference and similaries? But the most common thing these 2 have about them is that they are incredibly rare and in excellent condition! You won't find a more preserved pair of these together. Please note our young girl was missing a shoe, so her black leather laced shoes have been replaced with a close a match as possible but the shoes are not over a century old. The boys shoes are, as is his wonderful multi-layered outfit. Welcome to early germany in the 1900's! Value $200-500)
