Topsy Turvey Creole?

I don't know ANYTHING about dolls, but I spotted these ladies in an antique store, and had to bring them home. They are intriguing!

Before Google I would have simply enjoyed my new roommates - now I'm oh so curious about their history, but have yet to find a dark haired 'white' example.

Thanks Diane

The faces seem like cloth - only the face is hard - the back of the heads look like a fine burlap, and feel stuffed with something strawlike.
The blue eyed, black haired girl's face looks hand painted - paint is chipping away from the fabric.
Yes, one unit
No shoes

Thanks for responding!

Topsy Turvy doll?
by: Diane

Are the faces molded cloth or molded plastic? How tall is the doll? It is one unit with two heads, one body, right? Shoes?
