Any idea of origin?

Hi Peter
Do you have any information on figurines such as these? There are no markings on the base at all. The little girl laying down is pointing at exposed genital area (turned around for modesty sake for photo) Any idea of age and whether they are worth much or not? Thanks

Hi, not sure where these were made, although I have seen some before. Could be from China, Hong Kong or Macao.
They can't be very old. The Chinese are basically very prudish with any form of nudity, except with very small children. In the average Chinese society such items would not have been likely be made/available before the second half of the 20th century, or later. These items were possiby made for export in the last fes decades.
