Here is a RARE find, such a treasure this huge German Bisque Early Circa 1900 17 inch Bathing Beauty that comes to you ready for the beach. Marked on the back of her lower butt cheek 475. Wearing her lace ensemble and her molded white beach shoes tied up the ankle with a bow in front. Her face is very amazing with blue intaglio eyes, red accent lines above the eyes, blush and finely feathered brows, and delicately painted upper and lower lashes, nice rosy cheeks and a fantastic smile. Running her right hand through her mohair wig as if the wind is blowing the sea breeze. The right hand has 2 fingers missing that doesn't show because of it's position with the wig and her left hand is missing part of it's thumb and there is a little paint on the thumb. Otherwise there is no damage and no repair.
Someone has made her a wooden stand that has 1 dowel that goes up into her hollow leg which gives her stability and is great for display. Sprinkle a little sand around her feet and a few tiny sea shells and you will have a fantastic display.
