The Gerold Porcelain Company was founded in 1904 and rose to prominence for it's Dresden-style figurines, as well as hand painted household decorative items, until it closed it's doors in 1997. Prior to 1937 it was known as Gerold Porzellan and from 1937-1960 as Gerold & Company.
This adorable figurine, circa early 1950's, portrays a young girl carrying two goslings in a basket with two adult geese leading the procession. The colors are a combination of soft variegated blues and tans against the white, high glaze porcelain blank. The oval base measures 5 3/8" in length and 2 7/8" across; the figurine measures 6 3/4" in height. Marked with the Gerold back-stamp and "Made In Western-Germany", green mark 1949-1989. The omission of the hyphen between Western and Germany happened during the 1950's and afterward. There are no cracks or repairs; small chips on underside of upper bill and end of lower bill of one of the adult geese.
