Identifying Old Dolls

Anyone have any idea about these dolls? The heads are heavy and I can't determine what they are made of. There are no makings anywhere.
Thank you!

I would take these to a dealer. I think they are very old and have some value.

They are way cool!! I would contact a doll museum:

philadollmuseum.com/.../

They may have more info. I would love to learn what they say.

They could be very old primitives or reproductions.

Except for the marks on the one, they look too clean to me. Old dolls were usually well loved and some played with until they literally fell apart. Doll restorers love those. These look like old new because they are clean. Children in the olden days didn't "put their dolls up" like the 70-now collection series dolls.

Of course it is possible that they are old dolls newly dressed. What is the stitching like in the clothes? If it is very uneven hand stitching that would be a good sign. What are the bodies stuffed with? Sawdust would be a good sign or hollow. Fiberfill, not so good.

I hope you learn they are old and valuable and that my bit of skeptical view is way off! Can't wait to hear what you learn! Please post back with details!!

these look old and honestly almost like they are Amish or home made. They are possible invaluable because of this
