Charming and decorative, this pair of figures is made of the old, old plaster-ware, and I fell in love with them the moment I spotted them. The girl is leaning against her best friend, a huge dog, while the boy is embracing a goat. Country life at it's 19th century best!
Hand painted in jewel colors, they may have been repainted at one time in their long life, as there are touches of gilt peeking through the paint. The colors are blue, gold, yellow, apricot, pink and green, all the colors of Provence. These are shabby and have wear and patina, please only adopt them if you love that!
- Measure: Girl:5-1/4" x 4" x 9"h; boy: 5-1/8" x 4" x 9"h.
