They both have socket necks with SWIVEL HEADS, and their bodies are jointed at the upper arms and legs with their ORIGINAL STRINGING which has become slightly loose from age! The bisque heads are of FINE QUALITY and are incised on the back S. PARIS, 60 with no apparent chips, cracks, repairs or restorations!
