These lovely portrait .busts of man and woman are very heavy , each weighing about 6 lbs and are 13" tall. They are hand painted in soft pastels and have really nice detail with intaglio features. Numbers are incised on the inside of the base (No. 249 on both ) as well as a blue stamp which I cannot make out a name. The only damage I see is a flake on the inside of the base rim of the girl, not visible unless you turn it over. Late 19 th century I believe.
