Terra Cotta Monkeys


Whimsical pair of white glazed Mid Century Italian Terra Cotta monkey musicians, with one playing guitar and the other on bongos. Both figures are decked out in Chinoiserie style clothing with outrageous hats. Figure are set on classical pedestals. One of the best pairs of this genre we have seen! Minor old repairs.
