Found a few antique dolls and I have no idea how to identify them since there's no markings!

First is a naked one about 18" tall. Looks very old and has some cracking.

Next is one that... looks like a baby nun I think? Or pilgrim? Same material as the first one. This is about 8" tall.

And the last one is ceramic I think and only 3" tall.

Any ideas?

The last one is a Kewpie doll. Sometimes given as prizes at carnival games of chance or skill.

The "nun" I believe is dressed as a Puritan. The style of the safety pin may be a clue. I don't get the sense that it is really old. Early to mid 20th C maybe...

Hard to say about age without markings. Typically, if they are marked, the markings are on the back or back of the head.

Thanks for the reply! Definitely new to this world :santasmile:

I understand that without markings it may be impossible. I can't find anything on either of those.
