Pair of dancers, SP mark - Shearwater Pottery, USA

I initially thought Italian, but the SP monogram and the fact it's slip moulded has me (wishfully) thinking Richard & Susan Parkinson. Carlton ware is another possibility.

Reminds me of the Italian Drioli figures. Sold in the 1960's with alcohol.

Interesting. I was thinking Desimone from Italy but they have very distinctive eyes so that was a dead end

Not yet. Seems they still make the figurines using the original designs so dating will be tricky. I doubt they are older than the 70s, though
