Pair of Orientalists
Fine looking pair of small size Orientalist polychrome painted terracotta busts showing superb detail, numbered but otherwise unmarked.

Late 1800’s and unsigned but almost certainly either Austrian or possibly German in origin and quite probably by Johann Maresch (1821-1914) whose style of work this closely resemebles.
Numbered 868 and 869 on the underside and approximately 26 cm high with the female bust just a touch taller than the male.
