    I found these beautiful ladies on my trip to Savers earlier this week. They are in reasonably nice condition too. Only a few scuffs and tiny chips to the bases that can be easily touched up. The figures themselves are pretty much unscathed. Very nicely modeled they represent the Muses of music with her harp and poetry or literature contemplating a book. They stand 18 " tall on their felted bases and weight about five pounds each. They are partially hollow with a soft antique ivory finish and gold highlights. Very classy !

      Where do you think these were made Mike?

      Well Karen from what little I could find out New York in the 60's or 70's. They're no longer in business from what I understand.

      My mother and I found 3 more statues of the same brand. Could you help me out? I really would like to figure out who they are and how much they are worth.
