We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration an EXQUISITE ANTIQUE GERMAN BISQUE BOY and GIRL FIGURAL LAMP BASE!
This CHARMING COUPLE will endear you with their FANCY HATS and wonderful FACIAL FEATURES and coloring, and would appeal to both doll and porcelain collectors alike and in an IMPRESSIVE LARGE size that would command a presence in any advanced collection!
Made in GERMANY late 1800's, the figurine measures an IMPRESSIVE total of 12" tall, with a 5 3/4" wide and the figural couple measuring 9 1/2" tall. It is made of HAND PAINTED bisque and is of above standard QUALITY, as they are painted on both the front and back in beautiful blue, pink and yellow PASTEL COLORS, dressed in very FANCY Victorian outfits and embellished with GOLD ACCENTS; we particularly like the girl's gold MOLDED NECKLACE! A common Victorian theme, they are posed in an outdoor setting leaning against a molded tree stump, with the couple holding SEVERAL BASKETS, as if they were both going BERRY PICKING! We do not see any maker's marks, but apparently this large figurine was intended to use as a LAMP BASE, as there are two small round holes drilled in the back for easy attachment to a base. We have looked them over carefully and note that there are no apparent chips, cracks, hairlines or restorations!
An absolute ENCHANTING DISPLAY with antique dolls, as shown with our 22" antique Tete Jumeau Bebe, or if not used as a lamp base it could be used as a BACKDROP in a scene with your dolls!
This EXQUISITE ANTIQUE GERMAN BISQUE BOY and GIRL FIGURAL LAMP BASE would be a WELCOME ADDITION to any collection, and are being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane your buying consideration-------an absolute CHARMING COUPLE!
Any other doll or accessory items used for display are not included in this offering, unless otherwise specified.
