I have no idea what type of dolls these are, or where they came from. There no manufacture label or anything. Any clue on how to date these?!

    They are called costume or tourist dolls. There was someone here that knows these dolls the other day. Maybe she would be able to help you?

    Yes here I am:-)
    These are chinese dolls, depicting characters from the Peking Opera. Often high officials or noblemen/women

    Hi nationalcostumedolls.com, thank you for the information! Is there any way to date and maybe value these without a make or model number? Or any information you guide me to? Thanks for your time!
