Most Japanese bisque dolls were made between the 1910s and 1930s. The bisque dolls made in Japan from 1914 to 1921 are marked with "Nippon," while the ones made after 1921 are marked "Japan."

Japanese bisque dolls are made of bisque, which is unglazed porcelain. Porcelain is made from a mixture of clay and water; the mixture is molded into the doll's shape and then baked at extremely high temperatures.

Can anyone help me identify these dolls, what year they were made or more history on them?

    You seem to have the history right there, so I'm not sure what you are looking for. These dolls were mass produced, and there are thousands of them. Click on this and you will find some form of these dolls there.

    No they are not, but it doesn't make them any less charming :)
