I was wrong about the dolls. They are not porcelain; They're hard plastic like or something like plastic. I'm still trying to get pictures to you. I think I forgot to tell you there two dolls; a girl and a matching boy, same kind of outfit and short red hair.
Antique Expert: LadyTanya65, Certified Appraiser replied 10 months ago

Thank you for the information. They do sound wonderful and I look forward to seeing them. I will let you know when they are on my end here in post or by email I can post here when I receive them.
