hello - pairs of figurines (male and female characters) of dancers, singers, musicians often showing the clothes of various countries, have been coming from the Murano glass houses for probably the last 70 - 80 years.
The use of gold leaf seems to be quite common on a lot of these models, and some of the early pieces known to have been made by some of the big names are worth a lot of dollars, but it does depend on the maker and age.
Some of the characters have opaque (white) heads like these, others are clear glass entirely  -  not sure that I can see which country your pieces are supposed to represent might it be Italy.

Your examples might be recent pieces - let's hope someone else might recognize these figurines and have some idea of age for you.

Hello definitely have made ​​Murano in 1977 but it would be interesting to know who the manufacturer might be Barovier & Toso but I'm not sure
