This fetching mid-century blonde lady in gray figurine is dressed in late Victorian Style. Her movement is captured in the folds of her dress as this lady in gray is clearly in a hurry. The gold toe of her shoe peeks out from the ruffled hem of her skirt in a forward motion. She has caught up her skirt in her right hand, and the gray becomes nearly black in the folds as she scurries along. The severity of the color is lessened by the speckled gold trim down her skirt. The cuffs of her white and gold trimmed blouse show beneath the 3/4 length sleeves of her gown, and the high-necked bodice is trimmed with gold buttons and gold edging. She has blue eyes set off by long lashes and rosy lips in a demure face, and her blonde hair is pulled back into a long chignon. She wears a matching fashionable flat brimmed hat with a low gold trimmed plume.
This vintage lady figurine measures 8-1/4 inches tall and 6-1/4 inches by 3-3/4 inches at the hem of her skirt which is the largest dimension.
Popular circa the 1950s to 1960s, this type of figurine often had only a paper label, which has disappeared.
There is a pinhead sized nick in the backside of her left hand, and the very tips of the fingers of the left hand are a bit rough, but this does not detract from the piece. There is also a spot at the end of her left sleeve where the gray glaze was missed, and a pinhead-sized white spot in the fold of her gown about an inch below her right hand. There is no other damage.
