    I've searched everything I can think of to identify these dolls. There are no markings on either of them. The small doll is about 5 inches tall. The head and upper torso, hands and feet I believe are bisque. The lower torso, arms and legs are oil cloth. Both dolls were in my parents estate and I have no idea where they came from. The wedding doll is about 3 feet tall. Her eyes open and close. Her head turns side to side when her legs are moved. Any ideas on where else I can look to find out some history on either of these dolls?

      The nude doll is stone bisque and should be marked on back Japan or Germany , often called Dollhouse dolls but she has no name and many companies made these little dolls like her . Dates 1930's appx . Tell me what she is marked ok

      I've looked all over her and found no markings at all. The date would coincide with when my Mom was a young girl. She was born in 1924. Thank you so much for this information!

      The bride doll date coincides with MY childhood. I would have been around 5. Strange I don't remember having her, but then, I was quite a tomboy at that age! Maybe Mom put her away before I could mess her up! LOL Again, thanks SO much for this information, and the link you provided. I will be visiting that link again because I have numerous dolls from the estate without a clue on any of them!
