These two rather mature beach boys truly are nodding acquaintances, as their bisque heads bob up and down. They seem to be sizing each other up rather skeptically. Maybe they just realized they have inadvertently exchanged beach robes. They have delightfully detailed character faces and their stocky bodies and oversized hands and feet are well modeled. The blues and reds of their beach wear were cold painted, but the rest of the decoration is fired and of excellent quality. Each is 7 inches tall. The old boy in blue stripes is incised on the back edge of his robe "927" and his companion is marked "9274."
A friend referred to them as the "Bobb-sey twins." Wish I had thought of that one!
