Italian term or phrase: damine
Le Damine, collezione esclusiva, affondano le radici nell’arte ceramica dell’inizio del secolo scorso.
Racchiudono in ogni pezzo la cura minuziosa del particolare.
Forme dolci e voluttuose affiorano sulla lucida superficie delle Damine, figure dall’aria sognante, vestite di taffetà e crinoline.

I can guess these are small statues of ladies in elaborate dress but was wondering if there is a specific term for them in English.
