Terracotta Twins

Pair of Goebel German Terra-cotta Pixie Nudes (LEO Design)

Father and son team, Franz Detleff Goebel and William Goebel, founded F. & W. Goebel in 1871.  Soon afterward, they discovered their niche: beautifully-crafted sculptures and figurines aimed at the collector’s market.  For the next 140+ years, the company has grown and evolved—all the while adapting its product to satisfy the tastes of the times.

The pair of women, pictured above, are crafted in an understated, earthy terracotta.  Dated 1962, they reflect the sensibility of the time’s easy-going Modernism.  Sisters?  Best friends? Lovers?  I’ll leave that up to the future owners.
