I'm not sure what these dolls are, but one appears to be an angry Oriental baby, and the other is a crying Indian. I would love to find out more about these....like a maker and an age.

    How cute those are! Are there any marks on the back of the neck?

    The only marks on them are "HONGKONG" on the Indian and "Made in Korea" on the Oriental

    These guys very much like London Bob were made in the 60's and 70's. They have a good following and are collectable in their own right.
    Here is an example.

    On this site you will see many examples of these types of doll's including Bob
