We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a FABULOUS ANTIQUE GERMAN DRESDEN BALLERINA FIGURINE!
A UNIQUELY FASHIONED porcelain figurine circa early 1900s, such a UNIQUE example of this type is getter harder and harder to find, and this one is sure to appeal to both doll and porcelain collectors alike!
Made in DRESDEN, GERMANY, this delicate PRIMA BALLERINA measures 5 1/2" tall, 3 1/4" wide across the bottom of the skirt and is posed on a DECORATIVE BASE measuring 2" in diameter! She is captured with her head tilted to one side and with one arm gracefully bent on her hip while the other is curved in front with her elbow bent, while gracefully on her toes; a CLASSIC ballerina pose! She has painted light brown molded hair with a light blue bow embellishing her side part, while the fine painting of her arched eyebrows and dainty red lips accent her acquiline nose and elongated neck; many times these figurines have paled over the years, but this one still has FABULOUS COLORING!
She wears a white tutu with a BOTTOM TIER of delicate white ruffled netted porcelain at the hem, with a painted BURGUNDY BODICE and several dainty PORCELAIN FLOWERS strewn on the front of her skirt! As with many of these ballerinas there is some unavoidable breakage to the some of the lace, mostly in the back, but otherwise there are no chips, cracks, hairlines or restorations-----just LOVELY! She stands in PAINTED BURGUNDY ballet slippers, and is posed on a very fancy gold trimmed COLUMN BASE with unusual PINK DRAPERY cascading down the side NEOCLASSICAL STYLE, and underneath bears the signature marks of the blue stamped Dresden crown representing the manufacturer's mark.
We are showing her displayed next to our antique 13" French Fashion doll for not only scale purposes, but to demonstrate how STUNNING these wonderful figurines look as companions to antique dolls----- the PERFECT COMPLIMENT to any bisque or porcelain collection!
