Two old German dolls with wooden heads and cloth bodies, made by Hildegard Krahmer. I have expert confirmation that the doll on the left was made between 1949 and 1956. The little girl in the red knitted dress looks fresher and cleaner, but otherwise shares important points for identification and dating with the girl in plaits - the shape and carving of her face, the way her eyes are painted and her mitten-shaped hands (after 1956 the dolls had seamed fingers). Their mouths are slightly different - the girl with plaits has a sliver of white to suggest teeth, while her companion's lips are a little fuller and poutier.
For the first 25 years of production, the Krahmer doll heads were carved by Walter Wächtler from Oederan near Chemnitz.

The toy rabbits are hand-made, probably in Germany in the 1940s or early 1950s and are part of a "family" of eight.

I really like the choppy haircut on the blond, and those little rabbits are so adorable! And the dresses, nice photo!
