Up for your consideration.....

I think this is the BEST couple I've ever found in Antique Bisque!!! They are beautifully decorated, artist signed, and in wonderful condition!!! Little Lady measures 9 3/4" high by 8 1/4" wide....not small at all!! She stands next to a shell shaped vase which can hold flowers and probably did years ago. I checked her over very well and did not find any chips/cracks/repairs/crazing/paint problems!! She is signed on bottom "Paul Ux" and also "Made in Occupied Japan". Paul Ux was an artist who did bisque figurines, but these two are the largest and most ornate I have yet to find, even on ebay. The Gentleman measures 10" high by 7" wide. He is also superbly decorated and also signed as the Lady is on bottom. I checked him over as well and found one condition issue, he has a chip on the front of the vase edge, I think pics show it fairly well. It can be easily repaired, but unless you look really close, you don't even notice it when they are displayed together. I think for the age of this Bisque couple, they are in unique condition!!! Winning bidder will LOVE these two.! Shipping in US, due to extreme delicate nature of items, will probably be about $15-18 dollars, extra wrapping, double boxed (or even tripled) and insured to ensure delivery of them in the condition they are now!! *******INTERNATIONAL
