This is a very old, and unusual pair of figurines of German Porcelain.They depict the Shakespearean characters of Romeo and Juliette. For their age the colours are wonderful. The detail of the facial expressions down to the intricate strands of long hair on Juliette are impeccable.They truly are a splendid find. First time I have seen a set like this.They are in good condition. Juliette has no chips that I can find, Romeo however incurred a fall at some point and I have had to do some restoration. His neck has been replaced with porcelain as well as his sword and the tip of his left boot. His left hand has also been restored as it was completely gone. All in all they display wonderfully and even with Romeo restored, they are a keepsake. Measure 10" tall x 5" base. Could be made into lamps if desired.
