We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration an EXQUISITE PAIR OF ANTIQUE GERMAN PORCELAIN MANTEL FIGURINES!
A SUPERBLY FASHIONED set of porcelain figurines circa early 1900s, such BEAUTIFUL examples of this type are getting harder and harder to find, and this ensemble is sure to appeal to both doll and porcelain collectors alike as they are of AMAZING QUALITY, and we are now offering them at a REDUCED SALE price for your consideration!
The consists of a MATCHING PAIR, originally designed as decorative pieces to be displayed on a FIREPLACE MANTEL or even piano tops, and they are entirely HAND PAINTED in gorgeous vibrant colors! They measure an IMPRESSIVE 7" tall, 6" wide across the base and 3 3/4" deep, depicting a COURTING COUPLE fashioned in the ROMANTIC FRENCH! We especially love the ELABORATE COSTUMES including the beautiful hand painted flowers on the lady's skirt as well as the porcelain PINK ROSES in her hat and hand; note the beautiful molded FRUIT BASKET by her side! Many times we see similar figurines where the quality of porcelain is there, but the faces miss the mark; this pair is painted with FINE DETAIL evidenced in their arched eyebrows, painted lids, and sweetly upturned lips! Although unmarked (there are remnants of old hand written store paper labels which we will leave up to their new owners to remove if desired) they are undoubtedly of GERMAN ORIGIN circa early 1900's with the look of similar DRESDEN FIGURINES and made to compete with the FRENCH MARKET! Each figurine is positioned on their own DECORATIVE BASE with gold painted trim and generally in EXCELLENT CONDITION, there is a missing tip to an index fingers of one of the lady's hands, but overall you will find this lovely pair DISPLAY READY!
In addition to being lovely decorative mantel pieces, these wonderful figurines make sweet companions to antique dolls----- the PERFECT COMPLIMENT to any bisque or porcelain collection!
