The costume from Gutach in the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) region is by far the most well known national costume of Germany. The straw hat with woolen pompoms is very typical. Unmarried girls wear red pompoms on their hats, married women have black pompoms. The female doll obviously represents an unmarried girl. She has a boyfriend to match; the male is also comes from the same region. His hat is a little wrinkled from storage. Fine otherwise. These dolls most likely are made by Schmider.
