Tiny German All Bisque “Sisters” Piano Babies — Very Delicate —Beautiful — Dresden Lace
This offering is for a pair of tiny German piano baby sisters wearing lacy dresses and bonnets. The older sister is just a bit larger than her younger sister. This girl sits upright, wearing her fancy dress, tall bonnet and pretty orange-red slippers. She is 2 1/4” high x 2 1/4” front to back x 2” wide and is marked with the number “6949” on the base. Her hand painted facial features are well done and perfectly intact. There are gilt details on the ruffled lace collar. The hands have all the fingers intact. . As expected, portions of the lacy netting are missing from the bottom portions of the dress. It is miraculous that such a tiny delicate figure was not broken and thrown away many years ago. Now comes her younger sister which measures 2 1/4” high x 1 3/4” wide x 1 7/8” and is marked “6951” on the base. Her hand painted facial features are also well done and perfectly intact. There are gilt details on the ruffled lace collar. The raised hand has the tips of the fingers chipped and the other hand has a thumb chip. Because the hands are so tiny, these imperfection aren’t noticed with the figure on display. The damage can best be seen with magnification. As expected, small portions of the lacy netting are missing. There is no glue, stains, dust accumulation, or restoration on either figure. Please see the photos which are part of the description. These delightful girls have been a pair for a very long time and will appreciate staying together very much. Please contact me if you have any questions. Your package will be shipped by USPS First Class Insured Mail. Thank you for looking.
