I believe they are porcelain! I would like to know how old they are? I would also like to know who the figures actually are? I have never seen anything like them before and don't think they are "old" "old" but would think they were older? Maybe 50's or 60's? If anyone can give me feedback I would be grateful! Thanks! Inquiring minds want to know! I acquired them relatively cheap from an estate sale and thought they had a really cool look! Anyone every see anything like them?

    These are beautiful. Can't help you much, but I'm pretty sure the male is Saint Francis of Assisi. Not sure on the female, maybe Mother Mary or Elizabeth. Someone of the Catholic faith will be able to shed more light on who these saints are. They are certainly beautiful and unusual.

    Possibly Marcello Fantoni:
