These exotic heads come from the famous Alexander Backer Company in New York, known for its folk art. They are masterful examples of folk art from the Roaring Twenties. Both are chalkware, which is plaster that is painted with watercolor. The left head depicts a man with closed eyes. The right depicts a woman with long hair and closed eyes. The faces complement one another as does the contrast between ebony and ivory tones. A gorgeous piece for the collector of American folk art.

H: 10 1/2 in.
