This is a couple of Hina kokeshi doll, by Teruyuki Hiraga who is a Sakunami style kokeshi craftsman in Tohoku, Japan.

Hina dolls are put out on the every 3rd of March for the Hinamatsuri, which is a day to pray for the healthy growth of girls.
In the lunar calendar, around the 3rd of March is the time that the peach flower begins to bloom. From ancient times, peaches were said to be a fortunate food in Japan. The fruits protect you from bad luck. So, March 3rd and the timing of the good luck peach were put together as one. Thus Hinamatsuri is also called MOMONO SEKKU in Japan. (Momo is peach and Sekku is period in Japanese.)

The slender hat on the head of the male Hina is called Eboshi, which is a traditional style hat since ancient times in Japan.
