Appealing and desirable size ( 10 .”, 26 cm ) pair of closed mouth German character children by Gebruder Heubach, both incised “ 1 Germany Heubach ( in the ‘fan “ logo ) “ with the boy also bearing an incised mold number of “ 7246 ”.

Both have pale blue glass sleep eyes, closed mouths with fully pouty lips, are on similar fully jointed wood and composition jointed bodies, and are dressed in gender-appropriate coordinated regional costumes with similar black felt shoes, mohair wigs, and wicker caps with cloth flowers. Both are all original and in overall condition other some typical age wear to the fragile hats and some wear to the boy’s wig. Hard to find as a “ brother and sister “ pair and are being sold as such since it is most likely they have always been together since their date of manufacture ( circa 1910- 1914 ) … SOLD.
