4-1/2" ARMS AWAY European Porcelain 1/2 Doll - Grande Lady with Grey Bouffant
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1930 or so
ITEM: More than likely from Europe (possibly Germany), here's a porcelain 1/2 doll (porcelain half doll) depicting a grande dame with an upswept hairdo of grey (pompadour or bouffant). What is impressive about this piece is how the grey hair has individual strands entirely hand painted in the updo (probably does not show in my photos). The figure is undressed and is of a beautiful white lustre with colored glaze details to the face. The hands are in a lovely position - known as "arms away" I believe. Possibly a Kister piece (because of the brush stroked hair) but I am not sure.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. 4 holes. No chips or breaks. No repairs.
HALLMARKS: No impressed mark that I can spot - just a hand painted red glaze mark on the inside bottom.
SIZE: Stands about 4-1/2" x 2-3/4" wide.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to decorate!
