Pair 2 ½” ( 6cm ) tall seated bisque children and although small in stature superb in design and execution in extreme detail of clothing, arm and leg extensions and facial modeling. The one with the gold sun bonnet is definitely a female but although the other has a knee length dress and wide brimmed hat the other has a more masculine appearing facial structure and until almost 1920 it was not uncommon for young boys to wear dresses, especially when “ dressing up “ for special occasion……..US $95 the PAIR

He has well defined hair and facial features, costume edged in gold luster, and the wicker design of the basket is most realistically portrayed. Measurements are 4” (10m ) high and wide and 4 ½” ( 11cm ) deep. No markings found and there is a slight mold separation on bottom coming from right outer corner. …..US$ 165.
