We present two superb biscuit figurines with a porcelain base, made by the Vieux Andenne manufactory. It concerns two beautiful female beauties. One of them has the head strongly folded down and wears a long light blue-turquoise dress that reaches the floor, which is draped over the body and with a hood over the head. The rug is hemmed with a dark brown band. Her legs and hands are enamelled white. She stands on a dark brown ground. To the left of the lower leg is a greyish baluster-shaped vase. A round raised porcelain base is attached below. This has circular windings and also a blue concentric band. The second figure depicts a young girl in wedding dress with an almost transparent cut-out white blouse, with gilded edges, changing into a long ivory-coloured dress with a split at the thigh. A light blue long dress with a pinkish interior is draped over this. This dress is also beautifully draped over the head with a white wreath over the black hair. From her left shoulder to the hand are white flowers with a light green background. She also holds a white flower arrangement in her right hand. This figure also stands on a brown background and has a similar porcelain foot below as the previous girl. The bottom shows a glazed deep bottom, except for the foot ring. There is no clear mark. However, if one looks very closely, we see that the stand ring has hand-inscribed letters and numbers. With the first girl we think we recognize: “207 AMY and VLG7 yk” and with the second girl: “V.A.R T3”. The meaning of this is unclear to me. Both figurines can be dated around 1860. 2 masterpieces!
 
Condition: chip on the foot ring of the second girl (not visible externally), otherwise both figurines are perfect.
