A rare and unusual porcelain figurine of a female Cossack, produced by Schaubach Kunst circa 1940's. The Wallendorf Company was acquired by Heinz Schaubach in 1932, along with a majority share of Unter Weiss Bach porcelain. The Schaubach name was dropped and reverted back to Wallendorf following the 1953 nationalization. Porcelain production began in the municipality of Wallendorf, Thuringia in 1763 and operated under numerous restructurings, including its 1953 nationalization under the East German government, until 2008.
This fabulous Schaubach figurine of a lovely blue-eyed, brunette woman in pseudo-military garb is exquisitely detailed, with beautiful facial features and graceful hands, unique blue and white uniform complete with ammo pouches (!) and brown boots.
Finished in bisque porcelain with glazed accenting, this Schaubach figurine is in superb condition, free from chipping, cracking or repairs, with age appropriate wear to the bottom of the base.
Marked at the base with Schaubach's crown mark used between 1926 and 1953.
H 8.5", W 3.5", base 2.75".
