Vintage Pair rare NIEPOLD BORGHESE large Victorian figurines 13" chalk

Vintage Pair rare NIEPOLD BORGHESE large Victorian figurines 13" chalk for item safn-6881  
$125.00 $125.00

Large lovely 13" pair of matched Borghese figurines. Made of chalk, and hand painted. Original paper labels on the bottom of each. They are in beautiful condition and no damages that I can see at all. People mistakenly state that Borghese Figurines were made in Italy, most likely because of the association with the Borghese Gardens in Rome. The items were actually manufactured in the USA by Niepold’s Inc of Gaithersburg, Maryland just outside of Washington, DC, starting shortly after the beginning of the 20th century and continuing up till the early 1970’s. The company was started by a gentleman named Mr. Niepold and after his death, the business continued with his sons and grandsons at the helm. From existing documentation, it would appear that the business ceased production sometime in the 1970’s.
