These dolls are all bisque and all but two are marked Japan. The loosely strung one in front is probably the newest and a SHackman. The others are all the from the 1920s or 1930s. The first one on the left is probably the best one, as far as bisque work an facial painting. They are all without chips or cracks. The gal with darker skin is painted bisque and she has some spots on the back-she is otherwise a real cutie.
