      I left some information on these on the link below. They are made of alabaster and in your case the clothing looks stained which they could easily do with alabaster. Just takes some stained furniture polish which even wallmart sells now. Apparently alabaster does not (NOT) like water. I used a clear furniture polish to clean them when I clean alabaster. Fantastic piece you have - alabaster is easier to carve than marble, softer stone. A lot of the ones I see these days have been broken, unfortunately. Kudos !~

      It is actually not Rebecca. Rebecca always had an urn. This one would have been called Egyptian girl or even Cleopatra with the lion. There were quite a few Egyptian statues and lamps being carved at that time. This one would date into the early 1920's when Carter opened the tomb and Egyptian style became popular again.
