Black Americana comes in many forms and various subject matter. The black figurines are probably the most sought after and collected. Although most figurines portray the young black boy, this wonderful figurine is that of a young black girl.
Portrayed in one of the iconic images associated with black Americana, the black girl child is enjoying a large slice of watermelon while sitting on a chamber pot. Her facial details are lovely and depict an age of innocence and delight with her favorite treat. The red and black paint shows varying degrees of wear, but is still very good. The chamber pot in a deep antique gold shade is excellent. The figurine, circa, 1900, is from Germany and carries the number "5199" incised on the back of the pot. The figurine stands 5 1/2" in height and has an open base, which is earlier than the solid base pieces. The pieces of felt and be removed if you wish. There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
