Antique Bisque Lady Attached to a Silk Covered Box

Candy Box collectors should love this piece! It could also be interesting to collectors of Naughty Ladies. This little lady in the seated position is approximately 4-1/2 inches and standing she would be approximately 5-1/2-5-3/4 inches. She is such a refined lady with a very elaborate Victorian style hairdo much like those found on beautiful half dolls or pincushion dolls and I believe she is from the same time period which is early 1900's. Her origin is Germany. She has tiny beading down the front of each side of her camisole and molded ruffles on her pantaloons. She is sitting on the bon-bon box permanently (originally). The box is made of cardboard and is covered in a beautiful cream silk fabric with a floral motif with padding underneath. The cushion on which she is resting her feet is also out of the same fabric. I found no damage and no restoration to this lovely piece.

Item ID: H-00148

I am open to the possibility that this is a very elaborate dresser or power box since it has the matching silk padded and tufted cushion. I have seen these naughty ladies on both. I attribute the porcelain naughty lady to the German firm of Hertwig.
