A pair of Czechoslovakian Art Deco porcelain Nubian head vases, made for and imported by the George Borgfeldt Company in the 1920s. Borgfeldt owned a German doll-making company and had a retail location in New York City. Items imported from various European countries for Borgfeldt were marked with a crowned pinwheel and the words "Celebrate" Each of these vases has this impressed mark, along with "Made in Czechoslovakia". The pieces were made using a mold, with some hand-work, as there are subtle difference between the two pieces. The eyes are open slits in the vases and the cut-out section on the rear of each rim suggests that there may have been a metal armature that cradled a candle or oil lamp for interior illumination. The ivory colored painted finish appears to be an old addition. The underlying color of the porcelain is black and is apparent at various points on each piece.

Condition
EXCELLENT, wear consistent with age and use

Measurements
7" w x 8.5" d x 11.25" h each
