2 Banko Figural Wall Pockets Man w Basket & Woman Japan

Here is a pair of figural Bankoware wall pockets that we purchased from an estate sale. Both have an impressed mark on the back, more distinct on the man. It is oval with characters inside, made in Japan surrounding it. Both are hand painted with bright glazes but unglazed flesh areas... face, hands, feet. Eyes & lips are painted with underglaze stains and areas around the eyes and top of his head are washed with underglaze tints.

The man carries a large woven stick basket on his back and has a gourd bottle in his hands. He has some light crackles at the neck but he is in very good condition. He is 7.75" high x 3.75" at the widest x 2.75" deep.

Unfortunately, the lady is damaged. We've kept them together though since they have been a couple for so many years. Her head has been broken off. It was glued back on but not very neatly and there is a line of glue around her neck. Someone who knows about this type of repair could probably use a solvent to remove the old glue and repair her properly or at least re-glue her head in a less conspicuous manner. The rest of her is in very good condition. She has a dot of powder blue glaze on her nose from the manufacturing process. She is also carrying a large basket which is of a tighter weave than the mans. She measures 7.75" high x 4.5" at the widest x 3" deep.

I cleaned the exteriors of both pockets but I didn't clean the unglazed interiors. There is some soil or dirt down in the bottom parts.
