This lovely Lady in Green Porcelain Lace Figurine wears a dress of layers of green porcelain lace. The skirt is made up of four ruffled layers of lace, with the waistband and poufed sleeves of matching layers of lace in smaller and tighter ruffles. An applied pink porcelain rose sits at the center front of her waistband. Her bodice is green painted porcelain with a low décolletage edged in gold and a gold placket down the center front. She wears a matching porcelain bonnet in a slightly lighter shade of green with a painted porcelain bow. Her arms stretch gracefully out to the sides, and her face is painted with red bow-shaped lips and large, dark eyes beneath her dark blonde to light brown curls.
This little doll figurine measures 6-1/4 inches tall and 5-1/4 inches across her semicircular skirt. She is 3-inches deep, front to back.
Based on similar figures, she was made circa the 1950s. The bottom is stamped only with a blue crown mark followed by an "L."
As is common on these fragile pieces, the delicate lace has broken off in several places around the hem. Some of the broken folds are large, yet the damage does not destroy the beauty of this fragile little doll. There is also a small hole in one of the ruffles on the back. She only has four fingers on her left hand, but I think this is by design and does not appear to be a break. Please look carefully at the photos.
