Treasure Chest Thursday--Antique Toys

I remember these tiny toys as a child.  They were part of the train display under our Christmas tree back in the 1950's.  The two little buildings are made of wood and the tiny doll is porcelain with a hand crochet or tatted dress.  Back in the 50's there were several additional dolls.  In particular, I can remember one with a little bonnet.  Over the years, only these three items remain.

I do not know the date these were made.  There are no makers marks on the buildings or the doll.  My mother once told me that she could remember them when she was a child and that her father also used them as decorations under the Christmas tree.  Perhaps that was the reason they also found their way under my childhood tree.
