The Wallendorf porcelain factory is one of the oldest porcelain manufacturers in the German region of Thuringen. It was founded in 1761 by Johann Wolfgang Hammann. The factory started out making porcelain tea sets, coffee sets, tobacco boxes and pipe bowls and after 1772 they also started making popular porcelain figures. Around 1833 the factory was sold to different owners like Hutschenreuther, Kampfe & Heubach and Schaubach. Between 1919 - 1926 the owner was porcelain factory Fraureuth. After Fraureuth went bankrupt, the former director of the factory Heinz Schaubach founded the successful Wallendorf-Schaubach-Kunst. After World War II, the factory was located in East Germany and the factory was nationalized in 1953. After 1989, the factory at Wallendorf was reopened and Wallendorf porcelain was made again, using the historical molds.
This lovely figurine, Pattern #1106/6, is a beautiful bare-foot lady in strapless gown dancing the night away. In her uplifted right hand she is holding a single rose blossom as she wistfully gazes at it. Her high-glaze gown is a gorgeous pearl gray/blue shade. Lovely skin-tones accent her blue eyes, rosy flush cheeks and blond bobbed hair style. The figurine measures 9 1/4" in height and rests on an oval base measuring 4 1/2" by 1 7/8" in size. Stamped with the Schaubach Kunst Company mark, circa 1926-1953. There is one condition issue, the single rose blossom in her hand has been broken and reattached with a portion of it missing (see photos), it is only noticed when viewing from the backside. Priced accordingly.
