Vintage 60s figurines. The label is missing but research identifies this Old Couple as distributed by Ardco, fine Quality Dallas, Japan. There is 3/8" mfq. line on the old man's bald head, a pin size small hole in the old woman's hair which are minor manufacturing flaws. This is the only old couple set of figurines that I have seen where the man was not wearing a hat. He is bald with white hair on the back and sides of his head. There is nice detail and colors on both figurines. He has a watering can in one hand and a basket with plants in his arm. She is holding a small pumpkin or gourd of some kind. He is 7" tall and she is 6 3/4" tall. They appear to be coming in from the garden. Very Good Condition. A really sweet couple and highly collectible.
