My pair of figurines was given to my grandmother as a wedding present in the 1880s or 1890s. I have been told they are porcelain. There are no markings. I would appreciate any information you can pass along, including value. — J.W.

Answer: They are German bisque porcelain, which is unglazed white ceramic ware. Bisque was manufactured in Germany during the 19th century for figurines and doll parts. Bisque figurines often were hand-colored.
