ANTIQUE GERMAN PORCELAIN PIN CUSHION DOLL
ATTACHED TO ORIGINAL PIN CUSHION WITH CHINA LEGS!!!
4 INCHES TALL
MOVING SALE!!!! Downsizing big time!!! My Mother collected antiques for years. She passed away a few years ago at the age of 90. Back then, there was no internet, so she collected at local antique shows (remember those), and through "The Antique Trader" newspaper and other magazines.
She corresponded with various dealers for many years through the mail. Several of her "dealer friends" went on to publish reference books. Some of these half dolls, bathing beauties, and perfume figurals were purchased from Norma Werner and Frieda Marion, the authors of "The Collector's Encyclopedia of Half Dolls."
I am selling most of the collection, only keeping my absolute favorites. My loss is your gain!!! I am not an expert on these items. I will try my best to give a good description to the best of my knowledge. So here goes...
NEAR Mint condition (porcelain is mint, only flaw is the original silk fabric of the skirt is unraveling at the hem). Vintage 1920's German porcelain pin cushion doll. Flapper. 4 inches tall, 5 1/2 inches long (the china half doll portion is about 3 inches tall). Fabulous detail, face is stunning. Glossy finish No damage. HIGH color. I am certain the waist is incised with a number and "Germany," but it is attached to the original pin cushion, and not visible (I do not want to remove to look). Her sleek china legs with metallic gold pumps are attached to the pin cushion under the skirt. The pin cushion itself is nice and firm with an attached sewn-on silk ruffle accent. The bottom of the silk fabric skirt is unraveling. No damage to the porcelain half doll or legs. Truly spectacular!!!
