I found these two dolls in my grandmother's attic and I have no clue where to start researching them. They are delicate and very old.

Could anyone please help me out with some more information about this piece; age, period, maker, country of origin, value, name of items, process used to make it, etc?

Thanks a bunch, all input is appreciated.

    Hi your first doll is a hard plastic Saucy Walker doll from the 50's . She is not really fragile and is not in original clothes . They were made by Ideal Co. if she does not have Ideal marked on back of her neck then she is what we call a Saucy Walker look a like . Some companies copied her Like Impco Co
    Here is one like yours . You can do a search on Saucy Walker for her :-)

    The 2nd doll is a german Bisque Doll with a kid leather body , her head can break so she is more fragile . She dates from 1880's to 1920. She looks like a Armand Marsille doll and you should see a mark embossed on back of her neck under hair with some letter Like AM or Armand Marsille and a number like 390 ,370 it could have name Floradora also . And Germany . Look at back of her head and then we can be sure that is right Company and post what you see ok . Lovely dolls and thanks for sharing them ! Here is example of one of ways Armand marked dolls . Hope this helps answer your questions . I just need to clarify the markings on your dolls to confirm makers .
