Description: A delightful pair of Art Deco boy and girl figurines. The girl is wearing a yellow polka-dot dress and the boy yellow lederhosen. This could be traditional Austrian dress, harking back to Goldscheider's pre-war roots. The girl stands 11.5cm (4.5 inches) and the boy 12cm (just under 4.75 inches).
Marks (Boy):: Brown 'P' painter's mark. Small Goldscheider/Myott mark (14.5mm).
Marks (Girl): Impressed pattern number 702 with lower case impressed 's'. Small Goldscheider/Myott mark (14.5mm).
Price Guide: Asking price July 2003 £95 pair.
Notes: From the available marks it seems that the two pieces were painted by different painters. The style of decoration would suggest this also - the boy's plinth is stippled grey, the girl's slightly mottled grey.
