This is a lot of three very unusual FIGURINES painted in black with red accents. I originally had them listed in the Asian section of Show & Tell, but someone on another site suggested that perhaps they might be Eskimo figures. After looking at them again, I can see that, but to be honest, I have absolutely no idea who or what they are supposed to represent, or who made them. They all measure around 3" to 3 3/4" high and from approximately 2 1/8" to 4" across. One of the figures appears to be a female in a dress and the other two, in their exaggerated poses seem to be wearing robes of some type. They are all painted black and have fine, bright red line accents. In very nice condition. If anyone has any idea what they are, I'd love to know.
