I got these at a boot sale, asked expert to say if they were chinese or Japanese, and was told they were Japanese, Yamaguchi. Apparently very common to find japanese carvings with chinese subject matter and vise versa. Not sure what else the marks/signs mean. I am told they are pre 1940, possibly 1900 or turn of century. Does anyone know what the material it is. I can tell they are not ivory, but cant tell if celluloid or bone.
