G'day from Australia
I've had these two figurines for more than 20 years. I'm not sure of how I came about them but I've thought them unusual because of them being Mammy's (I stand corrected if I have mistaken what they are). I've been looking for Japanese antiques through these pages for a few years now and for the first time decided to do my own show and tell.
They stand around 10 inches high and 5 inches wide. They are both made of the same pottery like material.
By the two round holes in the rear of both of the figurines I thought they may have originally been finger puppets. Some smaller holes in one of the figurines are from wear I think.
Relatively light in weight approx 150 grams each one.
