    I have some little dolls like the first picture. I collect small dolls. These little dolls are like the dolls your grandmother and I got at a fair usually. Back in our day most dolls had a wooden head and was filled with sawdust. These little dolls were the first that I can remember being plastic. Of course my memory slips from time to time. However Iwould say they come from the fairs. The fair each year was a big deal to us because we had and saw so little then. We barely had television. If your family had the money to buy one.

    Your dolls are made of celluloid in the early 1900's/1920's. most were made in Japan, but some were made in Germany & US. The celluloid dolls were discontinued because this type of plastic was highly flammable. With out the markings are hard to identified the maker. Hope this help.

    these look like celluloid dolls they used to give out as prizes in carnivals and Fairs.
    Some where Occupied Japan also.
