Exquisite 17 ¼" German Porcelain Figurine / Statue ~ Woman, Angle / Cherub and Butterfly ~ Dresden Area Decorating Studio Germany 1920's +
Unfortunately, much of the work and the history of all the porcelain produced in Dresden was destroyed during the allied bombings of World War II. In a single night, most Dresden decorating studios were obliterated along with many historical documents, and the porcelain painting business has never fully recovered. Nearly everything in the Dresden porcelain factories was burned beyond recognition. This event effectively signaled the end of the manufacture of Dresden porcelain. However, owing largely to the vast popularity of the Dresden style, much of it remains preserved in antique shops and private collections around the world.
Dresden, Germany was a fundamental heart of the intellectual, artistic, and cultural movement. Many porcelain decorators, as well as sculptors, philosophers, poets, and painters, settled in Dresden. The phrase "Dresden porcelain" actually denotes more of a movement that focused on artistic interests instead of a specific company that produced Dresden porcelain.
The exquisite designs, and elaborate paintings, featured on many pieces of Dresden porcelain lend themselves to the allure of these highly collectible pieces. In addition, the abrupt ending of the manufacture of Dresden porcelain also adds to its appeal.
We cherish this piece in our collection and hope that their future owners will treasure them for many more generations to come.
