What a stellar addition to our collection of Royal Rudolstadt art nouveau women for sale!
The variation in the decoration from one to the other and from the small to the large is mind-boggling. This one is all bisque done in very soft pastel colors. The first photo shows it next to a small, miniature version.
Her curly hair frames her very sweet face. Can't you just feel the softness of her cheeks! More like a doll. Maybe that's why some people refer to figurines as 'dolls'. What is truly amazing about the condition is that all the curls, frills, ruffles, bows, etc. are in perfect condition!
The light patterning on her garment features raised gold painting. The hat and plume are somewhat textured - feels roughly like sand was added to the porcelain.
She measures approx. 9 1/2" high x 7" wide (compared to the 6 1/2" high miniature one - some of our miniature ones are in the 5" range).
The last one of this size we sold for over $800.00 and it had several small chips. This one is in superior condition with no flaws so clearly it is worth more.
As you can see, the base features the Royal Rudolstadt, Germany hallmark.
