    Artistinside
    (26 items)

    These came to me long ago, and were stored for years.
    I did not remember them being broke (female leg glued) (male foot broke, connected still with internal wire). I know the wire is part of the construction of these plaster pieces. The copyright says 1950 (CP) I think.

    Dimensions: Both are 8" high, Woman is 8" wide toe to toe, Man is 5" toe to toe. Each are about 3" side to side.

    Can anyone who is familiar with these tell me who made them.
    Regards, Kirk

      Dr. Fluffy, I do see the resemblance. Your table bases are extraordinary...

      Phil, thanks for the wealth of info. Question, so are you indicating that the copyright mark of 1950, does not really indicate when these were made. I will try to enhance the image of the copyright, maybe that can help to identify, or am I being too hopeful. Additionally, I remember seeing a pair of these on an auction house site some years ago, and they were quite valuable, does that make sense, or am I still dreaming.
      Thanks again, Kirk

      Phil,
      Thanks a million for all your incredible information. I will continue my pursuit of identifying these figurines with the use of your info. I will enlarge the copyright image, I too am a graphic designer by trade.
      Lastly, have you ever seen a pair like these before. I cannot remember where I saw them before. Again, many thanks, Kirk

      Inky, I agree, they sit on my desk, and they seem like they are going to get up and move. I remember as a child seeing them, and sometime later but cannot remember where. I believe they are rare treasures...

      p.s., I just when through your glass collection, it is awe inspiring.
