The two are a female and male figurines in a beautiful blue/green Opaline Jadeite and stand on a marble and brass base. Each is signed, A. Giannelli, and is in lovely, vintage condition. No chips or cracks, but they do show some small scratches, as shown in the photos. They would look fabulous on a mantel or to show off in a cottage decor.

The pair stands approx. 7" tall on a 4" diameter base.

A bit about the artist:

The artist, Cav. Arnaldo Giannelli, was an Italian master sculpture. Born in Volterra in 1907, he was a keen student of sculpture and graduated from the Royal School of Art. In 1944 he opened his own studio and produced pieces also for the Allied Forces. In 1953, he was appointed president of the Alabaster Craftsmen Guild, a position he held until 1961. His most famous pieces are a bust of Dwight D. Eisenhower and a three meter high totem for Boston University. For his professional achievements, he was awarded the title of ‘Cavaliere della Republica’ in 1970.

Please see my photos and send along your comments and questions. I am happy to provide additional views.

Thanks for looking!
