Highly unusual and quite charming terracotta bust of two young girls who are obviously very close.
The slightly taller of the two has long pigtails and wears a large bow in her hair whilst her companion is more simply dressed, with her hair covered by a floppy bonnet.
They look very natural together and make great subjects for a rarely seen ‘double’ bust.
Sculpted and signed by the artist De Gregorio some time in the late 1800’s and in very decent condition considering the age. Height is approx. 36 cm.
