Decided this morning to search that name and found GoAntiques.com listing the bust that I have for $185. I bought the boy and girl at a garage sale in Houston for $10. or $15. for the pair about 20 years ago. I had no idea these were worth much more than I paid for them. Will have to make a note for my children so when I die they will not sell them at a garage sale for $5.

The above is taken from your second thread.

Goodness yes...maybe attach a note to the bottom of the busts as well.

Great garage sale find!
