Fantastic Ichimatsu Japanese Dolls - boy and girl pair - in shichi-go-san traditional costumes

These are beautiful vintage Japanese Ichimatshu dolls wearing Shichi-Go-San costumes. The girl is wearing a blue silk furisode (long-sleeved) kimono with a chrysanthemum design and authentic obi. The detail is wonderful - she even has has a little purse hanging from her obi. The boy is wearing a beautiful haori (complete with miniature himo strings) decorated with samurai ships.
The dolls' faces are flesh coloured with facial features hand painted on. Their eyes appear to be made of glass.
