    Hi I found these bust while thirfting. I was wondering do anyone know what material it is made out of? I'm not sure. The male one has the number 650 engraved on the bottom. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

      It's a type of molded plastic. I see many statues here in the Netherlands made of this substance. The number 650 is just the mold number. The bust are of children.

      Not metal, I think these are chalkware or plaster, same thing. Nice to see them in good condition. These are likely from the 1950's to 60's.

      I believe these are called Syrocco (or Syroco) which is a molded resin and wood compound. They made all sorts of busts and statues out of it...

      I agree with Michelle, These are definitely a molded non metallic material. I also agree with Efesgirl that the 650 is simply the mold or model number impressed in the base after the grinding had been done.
