Julene Mechler figurines.
If you are not familar with Julene Mechler, she was a Hawaiian commercial artist and sculptor who created a range of ceramic and porcelain figurines based on her sculptures.
The figurines were made during the 1950s and 60s, and are highly collectible today. Each model was cast and hand-painted by Mechler herself, and the range features a cast of native Hawaiian characters.
The majority of her figurines were female. The male figurines are extremely rare.
Both figurines have normal crazing. Both have a few tiny chips but nothing realy noticable. They are in extremely good condition.
The one figurine stands approximately 6" tall and base is 3" wide (side to side). The other figurine is approximately 5" tall x 3" wide (front to back)
Both are signed on bottom
