Netherlands Boy and Girl Dolls Wearing Traditional Dutch Costumes (Full View)

Girl and boy souvenir dolls from Holland, in the Netherlands. They are in traditional Dutch costume. Both dolls are wearing the famous wooden shoes, called klompen. These shoes are hand-carved and unpainted. The girl is wearing the traditional peaked Dutch cap, a red coral necklace with decorative buckle, and a dark dress, with embroidered collar (kraplap). The boy is wearing a dark jacket with the traditional double row of brass buttons in the front and a chain at the waist of his loose-fitting pants. The figures have molded hard plastic heads and have jointed arms and legs. Their torsos are stuffed cloth. The wrist tags read, "Genuine Rozetta Dolls - Amsterdam (Holland)". The figures stand 8 (20 cm) inches tall.
