Hollow clay children with partial glaze have cutout eyes which appear quite black in any light. Marked on base only 'Toyo'. Metal figure is signed and also attributed to Toyo. Extensive searches for Toyo yield multiple findings, all Japanese based, but nothing related to this subject. These figures date to at least the third quarter of the 20th century. Clay figures are 8 & 9 inches tall, metal figure is 11 inches. Any additional information much appreciated, thanks, Jim

    Weird but interesting.
    The first two have a '50s, slightly Manga, look to them.
    Creepy without their eyes
