These cute boy and girl figures are a vintage pair of bookends. Children like these with their round eyes and little oval mouths were popular in the 1960's. They are made of a light reddish clay with their skin being unglazed and everything else having at least a light wash of glaze. He is dressed in blue overalls and a "straw" hat and she's wearing an ochre dress and has a light blue bandanna. She's holding a couple of flowers and there is a small bird on each of the tree trunks they are leaning against. They are turquoise flocked on the bottom and the light circles are paper plugs over the firing holes on the bottom as these are hollow. One has a sticker that reads; Made in Japan and the other has a foiled paper label that reads; Enesco - Imports - Japan. These would be great for a child's room.
They measures about 6 ¾" high and the base is about 3 1/2" by 4 3/8". They are in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage.
