(Charlotte Clark, 1940s) An extremely rare pair of handmade Bongo and Lulubelle Dolls by Charlotte Clark. The dolls come from Clark's personal collection and were given to relatives in the 1950s. Both dolls stand 13" tall and are made of a textured brown material resembling bear fur. Bongo has a corduroy hat and jacket. Lulubelle has a yellow felt flower and a ruffled blue fabric skirt that is slightly faded. Lulubelle has some material loss around her eyes and nose. Bongo has light general wear throughout, but he is in extremely fine condition with no serious defects. The pair are the only examples of these characters we have seen by Charlotte Clark.
