A Sweet Little Brother and Sister Pair. Isn't this the sweetest pair? Two babies hold their pets, a cat and a puppy. Fine old unsigned Victorian-era German figurines in the manner and quality of Heubach. Striking on display at 12 inches tall.
They are dressed in floral nightgowns which are decorated with gold beading and trim, with a lovely blue and lavender transparent color wash, like water color, with unpainted backs in typical Heubach style. The faces are beautifully painted, with double-stroke brows and lids, carved intaglio eyes, open mouth with painted teeth, and blushed chubby cheeks that match their rosy lips.
The artist has done a great job capturing the joyous expressions of these two pals. You can just about hear them giggling and chatting in that sweet toddler way. A unique pair with happy presence. No damage to the bisque.
Some tiny nibbles to the bottom rim of the bases, some gold rub, a few of the applied beads may be missing, not many. A lovely set, fine old German workmanship, ready for display. Photos taken with daylight bulbs for accurate color. Though monitor colors may vary.
