I was left these two Antique Japanese Dolls from my late mother. They were given to her by my dad over 50 years ago when he was in the service in occupied japan. They are both in their original mirrored back glass and wooden display cases. The cases measure about 10 1/2" high x 5 3/8" deep x 7 " across the front. The dolls inside have never been out of these cases. They are on a wooden base and there is a small wooden dowl of some kind which somes through the bottom of the case.
I am looking for any information someone can help me with. Such as how old are they? Is there a name for this type of doll? What materials are they likely to be made of? What would the approximate value be for insurance purposes? I would appreciate any help someone could give me that is more knowledgeable than myself.
