Nova Scotia Male and Female Dolls Made with Apple Heads, Wool Hair, and Hand Made Clothing (Full View)

Elderly couple made with appleheads. The man is wearing pants with suspenders made of yarn, a print shirt with buttons, and a fisherman's cap. He is holding a fishing net. The woman is wearing a pink print dress that is trimmed with white lace. She has a white cap on her head and is crocheting a blanket. Both figures are created with fabric covered wire. Both have white wool for hair on top of their apple heads, and they are wearing wire glasses. The man has knitted black socks, and the woman has knitted white socks. Tag: "Suttles & Seawinds, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada. NATIVE APPLE DOLL. My name is Dorothy. I was born over 100 years ago on Tancook Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia.
