Pair of Vintage Niepold Borghese Chalkware Traveler Man & Woman Figurines L1B

For your consideration is this pair of chalkware figurines made by Borghese. They both have the Borghese sticker on the base.

The most common misconception about Borghese items is their origin. Many sellers mistakenly state that they 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. Little is actually recorded about this company except for the first page of a Borghese catalog that dates to about 1970. 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.
