This wonderful figural plateau was made by Volkstedt - one of many fine manufacturers of German porcelain. This piece was made between 1900-1945 and is large: 10" tall by 8 1/2" wide. A woman is getting ready with the help of her maid, while a gentleman sits in a chair patiently waiting. The quality of workmanship is outstanding from the pleasant facial painting & features to the intricate detail of their clothing. It is in good condition with some lace damage and a professional restoration to the standing woman's neck. It is very difficult to find an older piece without any imperfections. Layaway is available upon request.
