Porcelain Luster Ware Pin Dish - Pierrot Pierrette Clown Figure - Made in Bavaria
This charming dish was made in Bavaria in the 1930's; an era when lusterware goods and also the Pierrot figure were particularly popular.
Made of porcelain and luster glazed in pearl (inside of dish), blue (outside of dish) and peach (costume). The black accents were cold painted after the firing.
The base, or dish, measures 4 3/4" in diameter and 3/4" tall and the overall height is 3 1/2". Red-stamped "Bavaria" on the underside.
The lovely figurine has feminine features and may be Pierrot's counterpart, Pierrette. We are not overly familiar with these characters but a quick search brought up words like 'Mardi Gras' and 'masquerade' which may explain the mask. Nicely hand painted face with a tiny demure mouth and dots for nostrils, a pointed chin and delicate body.
In excellent condition with no damage other than several tiny firing dots here and there and very minor wear to the cold painted line that trims the costume.
