Little red Riding Hood
her clothing has lots of layers from her cape, pinafore, dress and lacy knickers.
Her little straw basket is very well made as are her limbs. Click on the photo for a larger version and take a look at her hand holding the basket.

Little Red Riding Hoods, face detail
I just loved the little detail to the socks. I'm thinking that the shoes where painted ontop of the socks with a gloss paint.
the smallest cloth doll in the collection, 4inches
Couldn't quite make out what was used to embellish the fronts of the hand painted shoes and socks. It looked like wire coils.
This doll was about 5inches.
Could she be Gretal or a German costume doll?
Beautiful fine sewing on her clothing.
And who is this gentleman?
He looks to be like a hunter or Shakespearean actor.
Very fine needle sculpting on the face. Black velvet cloth was used for the hair.
Just look at how clever these hands where made!
