Does anybody tihnk these terracotta busts might be from Devon

? Both marked WG & Co 1919. Seem like a king and queen but haven't been able to identify them . About 8" tall.

Yes , I think they have been outside. I haven't cleaned them as is my norm! For some reason I was thinking King Solomon. Also it looks like WG & Co. which led me towards British, but the Co isn't clear. The folds in the figures have some black stain overlaid here and there by a white paint with a sparkle?!!

Austrian seems a good shout. Reminds me of something by Ferdinand Gerbing that I saw, also in terracotta- neo classical
