A delightful rapport is expressed between these beautiful figurines ~ each tips their head sheepishly toward the other~ surely there is a story here with this charming pair. Standing a grand size of 13" tall with a 5" wide base. Each figure is stamped with the Heubach Sunburst mark on the bottom.
The figures are dressed in gilded, hand painted costumes. Her clothing has wonderful detail, especially the floral embroidery on the soft blue bodice. Her bodice matches his pompom buttons and compliments the gold star on his costume. The faces are beautifully painted with gentle expressions and intaglio eyes. She may be the Mistress of the dog act. He has subtle clown make-up of red and blue over his eyebrows and white circles on his cheeks. A scattering of flowers adorn one side of his costume and gold, blue and red dots on the other. His ruffled collar balances her frilly tutu with blue dots. Both are leaning against matching wood plank pedestals. The sawdust at their feet shows the footprints of where they stood before. There 2 are small flakes on the front of his base, which would easily be disguised with some watercolor paint.
Rarely found pair of delightful Heubach figurines, amazing detail and beautiful execution. These would look great with of few of the Heubach white terriers at their feet!
