I have 2 Asian dolls, a male and female, who are about to marry

Customer Question

I have 2 Asian dolls, a male and female, who are about to marry or have just married. They are wearing ethnic (wedding) costumes which are very elaborate. Lots of brocade and
asian symbols and very elaborate head covers as well. The female is carrying a large fan, trimmed with down/feathers. The feet and hands are made from cloth and their heads are a hard substance, laminated with cloth. The faces are beautifully painted. These dolls stand 32" high. They don't appear to be antique, vintage possibly. I would like to know what ethnicity they are and what their value might be.
Thank you.
