i think these two might be quite old...
these are called pipeclayfigurines (pfeifentonfiguren) in germany.
(actually pipeclay is normally white therefore they should be called in the manner of pipeclay figurines)
as far as i was told from 1400-1500 a.d. ???

both found in a corner of an old vaulted cellar in the old town of quedlinburg by the owner while his restoration work and then luckily sold to me.
