    In general people on this site don't do valuations, since doing so can be fraught. People are quite generous with help identifying, though, and then you can search online for sold items to establish value.

    Do you know for certain they're Inuit? Maybe a second or third picture, esp of unique details of construction and materials, will, as I've heard before, "help us to help you."

  3. Hi,
    I have searched online which brought me to this group, so was hoping someone might have an idea based on their own experiences

    I've had some Inuit dolls before, but most of them were older, and made of spotted seal skin, and then sewn w sinew not thread, etc. That's why I thought additional pictures might help identify them.

    Yours are nice. And are certainly hand made. But from the picture they look to be made of commercially available materials, which is key to dating them, which is key to valuing them.
