Yes, I am also looking for info on this company.  I inherited from  my parents two beautiful matching stautes about 14 inches in height of two lovely oriental figures, one a male and the other female with a small child standing at her side.  The gent carries a box of red fruit.  The colors are a rosy beige and a  soft muted green and flesh tones and both have gold accents.  These are obviously a pair and were sold/bought as such.  On the back of the base of the gent are the "carved in" words "Colulmbian Statuary."  My parents had these staues in their first apartment which was furnished in the very early forties. Their estimated age is nearly 70 years or older.  They are lovely and in fairly good condition.  I am using them on my mantle in the living room.  Very striking.  Not overly detailed, but very tasteful and muted in appearance.
