Found this alert pair at Sally A's (Salv. Army) last year. They love keeping an eye on my garden & people dropping by...and furry little critters as well. I tried to research their origin but didn't have any luck. I'm guessing from the 50's maybe? They're quite at home on the back porch.

I'd be guessing the 1950s during the craze for Oriental style decorations brought on by the popularity of the musical "Anna & the King of Siam." These gals have a 50s look about them. Great find and I love the colors too!

I remember seeing those in black with gold & I think either aqua or cream. They were quite popular & I think it was 50's also. Jan

Well they are the right color for the 50's Aqua. Maybe she is Tuptin and he is Lun Tha the young lovers from the movie The King and I, I loved that movie especially the music and lyrics.

Great Memories of the 50's

Very pretty! I was wondering why the gal on the right was flat chested. lol! They are a gorgeous color. I agree, they are probably from the 50s - right style and color.

I love porcelian figurines from the past. I also have a gal that sports an asian styled gown but with a more western hairdo.
