More Hong Kong Dolls

These two made in Hong Kong dolls are quite a bit smaller than the farming couple pictured below. They also have black embroidered nostrils instead of natural. The male doll probably represents an average Chinese man or scholar and the female, a countryside mother. An online search surfaced a duplicate doll wearing a cloth baby carrier that ties around her shoulders and waist complete with child doll. The tag attached to this doll has a three-footed Chinese urn printed on it as well as the words "Chinese Doll," "Tripod Mark," and "Made In Hong Kong." They are both quite sweet dolls that I bought off of ebay and are in great condition other than the water-staining on the face of the female.
