This old, unglazed porcelain piece has a cute, round faced, big eyed child with short blonde hair. The child appears to be dressed in a white shirt, pinafore and pill box hat that resembles a nurse's uniform. He...or she, is sitting on the edge of a green jasper, wicker styled basket which could have been used as a match holder. It is not marked Germany but on the bottom is a number indicating that it was made in Germany. It has the whimsy of a Schafer & Vater piece but does not have the S & V crown mark. This impish face was used for a number of whimsies so must have been quite popular.
It measures about 5" high and is in very good condition with no cracks, damage or repairs.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
