Beautiful and dynamic set of two Japanese samurai warrior dolls on horseback. Possibly representing the very well known Toyotomi Hideyoshi or Yoshitsune Minamoto and Benki. One samurai rides a white horse caught in mid stride while his rider leans forward in pursuit. The other warrior is on a black horse that is standing still analyzing his next move. Both warriors have intense expressions and are decorated in full armor with bows and arrows. Very highly detailed with all original parts. Edo Period (early 19th century). Size of warrior and white horse: 28" high x 33" long x 15" wide. Size of warrior and dark horse: 29" high x 21" long x 15" wide.
