I have 2, 15 5/8" tall x 12" wide, raised carved marble french ladies from the Universelle Exposition of 1889. They are both marked on back "Universelle Exposition of 1889". The resemble large cameos. Can anyone tell me anything about them and their worth? I am attaching photos.

One of our members who you will see post from time to time by the name lemog, is in France and knows about numerous European expos. (the one you are discussing was in Paris).

He may know somebody over there who is familiar with collectibles of that particular expo.

I know over there they sell a lot of expo collectibles at markets that are similar to America 'flea markets', with sellers paying rent for booth space.
