|We are very proud to offer a pair of ( male & female) Italian glass Harlequin figurines. The male is 13 inches tall x 7 inches ruffle to ruffle. His base is 4 inches in diameter. He is in original & excellent condition with only blemish being a flea-bite chip to edge of base. The female is 12.5 inches tall x 4.75 inches wide at her skirt. Her base is 3.5 inches in diameter. She is in original & excellent condition, however, there is an internal "crack" on ruffle on her left arm which appears to be factory made, as it is quite smooth on outside. Both figures are covered with glass ruffles that have gold inclusions.The Harlequins are really quite scarce. They were originally designed to depict characters from the Italian Commedia Dell Arte & they are extremely popular. They typically sell for more than $1,000. each if not more. They are attributed to Franco Toffolo of Murano, Italy. They date to 1960-1970. Franco Toffolo is a Glass Master. The ruffles are amazing, & do not forget the difficult Harlequin patch-work pattern. They are a beautiful pair. We are pitting them on sale for $800.xx for the pair (both) from value of $1.650.xx. We take PAYPAL only.|
