It is called Shiwan Figurines (石湾公仔). It was made in Shiwan, Guangdong, China.
The earliest day was from the late Qing dynasty. But I think it could be made in the first half of 20th century.

Those two are in my opinion from the second half of the 20th century.

I hope this helps,

Hello Suzume and Pei.
Many thanks for your info,Looks like mine might be an earlier one and not very new ,which is good,I am amazed how cheap the are,and what little value they have.
Looks like it is between 1920-1950s
