      Hi you have novelty or tourist dolls . Sold to tourists . The collecting of these types of dolls is limited as they were not meant to be dolls to be played with just novelty decor pieces :-)

      Thanks for the information. They are from the 30's according to my mother in law. I have not been able to see any similiar ones.

      The second one looks a lot like a Klumpe or Roldan Doll by high arched eyebrows . The first one you said is marked made in Japan . These dolls were mass produced and often were made in different international dress in Japan, Germany,USA . I am sure we could find one exact if searched ebay everyday . If a Klumpe or Roland the earliest they were made was late 1950's through about the 70's .

      Hi Manikin
      Very good answer and info. It looks like that is what they are. The sticker was marked JAPAN.My information may be incorrect as to age. Many thanks for a good answer.
