A beautiful, as well as unique, pair of porcelain and real lace figurines, circa 1950's. The figurines portray a Colonial period lady and gentleman attired in period clothing and each with a musical instrument. The decorations are a combination of white porcelain, glazed and unglazed hand painted colors and bright gold enamel along with the added elegance of real lace adornments on the costumes. The earth tones of brown, tan and red-rust in contract to the white porcelain and bright gold is lovely. The lady is holding a lute, while the gentleman is hold a flute. They figures measure 7 1/2" in height and are both stamped in red "1905 - PATP 13338 & PATP 21287", which I feel are Japan markings. There are to cracks, chips or repairs; the lace has darkened with age.
