Set of two matching portrait-style photographs of hand-painted wooden doll figures
These two matching dolls were photographed in a very old and unusual southern house, using natural light in the place where they were displayed. The carved wooden figures had jointed, articulated arms, and hand-painted facial features. Although the house predates the American Civil War, the age of the dolls is unknown. Perhaps someone with knowledge of collectibles can add information about them in the comments.
Given their unique facial features and individual dresses, we have taken the liberty of assigning a name to each of the ladies. Meet Claire and Prudence.

Only faintly visible in the photographs are the cobwebs near the necks of the figures. In the high-resolution images, small cracks and chips can be seen in the paint.
The photographs can be purchased as a set-of-two fine art photographic prints, or individually, in sizes up to 40-inches square.
