    It is difficult to make out, but it could be 'bi' which is beauty, or possible Sansui which is a relatively common name. Be aware though the mark isn't clear so it may be something else entirely.

    I know nothing about Kokeshi dolls.

    When you say "very old", "antique" what age do you think they are?

    I think there is someone here that used to collect them, or perhaps still does.

    This may be helpful.

    I just look at the paint. The crackling lacquer. I don't know if I am correct though.

    @916Bulldogs123.......... I was hoping to find a member that collected them, but I must have read about them in another forum.

    Have you checked them out on ebay?

    I would consider that a very good price!

    I hope you get the same results.....or even more.
