This item is a Goldscheider porcelain figurine manufactured by the Goldscheider-Everlast Corp. in Trenton New Jersey. It is my understanding this was operated between 1940 and 1952.
This 1940's porcelain piece is a bust of a beautiful and serene lady. She is portrayed wearing a pink dress with a narrow gray lace collar trimmed in purple. Her large hat is pink with yellow lining and is trimmed with a black ribbon. Her hair is soft around her face and falls over one shoulder. Her head is tilted to one side giving the impression of shyness. She is shown on a base of gray porcelain trimmed with green vines.
The porcelain is in excellent condition. No chips or cracks. The colors are beautiful and clear. Her face is very delicate looking. I have tried to see if there was crazing on this piece. If you put her under a very bright light, minor crazing can be seen slightly around her shoulders. I do not see any on her face. And really, it is not easily seen on her shoulders. This is truly a beautiful piece.
She measures approximately 6 3/4" to the tip of her hat and 4 3/4" from shoulder to shoulder. She is marked on the bottom with two stamps. One reads "Goldscheider USA" printed around a large "G". The other stamp reads "Goldscheider Everlast Corp.". This is printed in a double circle stamp. There are numbers embossed on the base from the manufacturing process.
