Default Help finding value of these Vietnam Figurines

My father in law brought these home in the 60's. Unique looking ...but wife wants to sell then. I'm hoping they are worth a lot (of course) but have no clue how to find the approx value. Anyone here have an idea on how to find the value?

Are there any markings on the bottom of them indicating who made them and/or when?

Good thought Brian. I had to go look. Not much there. One little sticker that I cannot read. Same with all I got out of the box. I thought I could enlarge the pic and read it but no go. I'll dig up a magnifying glass and try that way.

Those look like Chinese Mud Figurines to me. But since they have a matte finish they are not like most of the Chinese Mud Figurines that I have seen as most/all of those are at least partially finished with a high gloss/ceramic finish over parts of the figures.

No clue what a Vietnamese figure is worth.

I know that the vintage Chinese Mud Figurines are in the $8 to $10 (each) range at shops.

I'm sure there are some worth much more, but I've commonly seen old ones in that price range.

Wife's eyes are younger and better than mine. She said the little sticker on them says "Japan".

OK, no clue what those are worth either. But if they are post-WWII era Japanese then there is probably a specialty market for them. I know that a lot of post WWII era Japanese goods (toys, etc) are collectable.

Did you check Ebay?

Hakata figures?

They're adorable.

I recognized them Doc from when my Aunt Midori had some.
That was my Uncle Jack's wife whom he met while in the Navy.
The little man holding the scroll looks slightly familiar.
She had mostly porcelain figures tho unlike these.
