They appear to be a male, female and a child. The tallest (vase) seems to have a male face, the medium (vase), a female face. The smallest piece (a perfume bottle?) has both a child's face one one side and a baby's face on the other with 2 herons: one on the left and right.

These have initials on the bottoms which say, "SLH, JDJ, and/or TAP": The corresponding bottom of each piece has its assigned initials on the bottom in each's photo.

I have searched high and low and cannot find these rare pieces anywhere and have been told over and again they "are one of a kind", possibly Majolica or Capidomonte! I have asked close to a hundred people all over the USA if they know anything about them and they said they have never seen them before.

The woman who gave them to me told me 7 years ago that they were "older" AND that they "cost a lot". She's moved and I have no way to ask her now.

The large is 10 inches tall and smallest is 5 inches tall. They both have 2 faces. *Medium one, "female" is 8 inches tall. The small (perfume bottle) one has 2 faces and 2 birds, like an egret or heron. The medium and small pieces are in mint condition.

    I found out myself that they are David T. Keyes from the 1970's or 1980's. By far these are his most timeless and beautiful pieces from what I have seen and I have not seen trios of his anywhere.
