These two turtle character dolls are from a Japanese fable. The bottom of the wood base to the tip of top of hair each measures approx. 6 1/2 - 7" tall. They have hand painted faces with side glancing eyes. The turtle with the light brown/titian hair is marked on the bottom of base: JAPAN in black ink and then has a store tag that reads: Futaba Doll Atelier Kochi. He has a small hole back of right leg. The dark brown hair turtle has two brown stains by the right part of his mouth and one at the right side of his hair. He is marked: MADE IN JAPAN on bottom of his base. His hair is a bit mussed from storage and base has some marks on bottom. Both are made of silk stocking material with human hair wigs and hand painted features.
