    Please check Full Image for photos. I see similar Sets are labeled Grandma & Grandpa. We need photos of the bottom to see if anyone can determine who made them.

    I know there's no writing on the bottom of them.

    Still helpful to see the bottom. Many people here can get an idea of the age of things by seeing the bottom.

    Maybe someone will be along who can give some other info. The others I see are mostly German, but I know many got copied in China (generally speaking)
    @dgbjwc ?

    Thanks, INH. I'd need to see the bottoms I'm afraid. If they are basically just hollow with a narrow rim I'd be more inclined towards German than modern. Also a shot of the backs might help. Although not a true tell, a decorated back increases the likelihood they are more recently made. The yellow on the man figurine and the overall brightness of the pieces bothers me a bit but I just need more pictures to say anything for sure.

    Yes, "nodders" is the term for porcelain figurines where the heads rock back and forth.
