Pair of Art Deco female head sculptures. Material feels like heavy plaster of Paris. Painted a medium-grayish blue. Most likely from early 1930s. 18" tall x 18" wide at base x 8" deep at middle of face image. These have been in my family for approximately 90 years. My grandfather brought them home to my grandmother. I was told they were retail store fixtures. I have looked all over online, in libraries, etc. Never seen anything else like them.

In my family for 90+ years. It is my understanding that my grandfather brought them home to my grandmother. I have been told they were retail store fixtures. I have looked all over online, looked through library books, never seen anything else like them. Unique, striking Art Deco pieces.
