i'm here, i sniffed it out...

ebay or bust!

are they made of bisque?

or ceramics?

they appear to be a form of the campbells soup kids figurines...

any markings on them?

and look like from the 1940's from the shot...

Hey Rusty,

Some info....
they are bench sitters (or shelf)
About 6" tall\I believe made of bisque(not sure) do not really know the difference, although they feel light weight
the face, legs and hands, are not glazed
Made in Japan sticker on bottom
Eyes are closed and they have a pursed mouth like they are whistling or singing, which is why I sat them on a bench.
There are markings on bottom...2 circles, one larger than the other, with what may? be the number 3, can't make out what is in the smaller circle




Sorry Rusty, thought the pic would be more defined!!
