We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration an EXQUISITE TINY SIZE ANTIQUE GERMAN DRESDEN MINIATURE PORCELAIN BALLERINA FIGURINE!
This SUPERB example of a coveted collectible is sure to appeal to both doll and porcelain collectors alike and will ENCHANT with it's hard to find DIMINUTIVE SCALE; we frankly have never seen one this small, making it the PERFECT ACCESSORY for display in an antique FASHION DOLL'S parlor or living room vignette!
Made in DRESDEN, GERMANY, this delicate PRIMA BALLERINA measures a TINY 2 5/8" tall to the top of her head, and only 3" tall to the tip of her fingers, and is posed on a DECORATIVE BASE with rich GOLD accents measuring only 7/8" in diameter! She is captured with her head tilted to one side and with one arm curved on her waist and the other stretched out to one side, while standing gracefully with one leg outwardly extended; a CLASSIC ballerina pose! She has painted medium brown molded hair, while the fine painting of her arched eyebrows accent her dainty face; many times these figurines have paled over the years, but this one still has FABULOUS COLORING!
She wears a porcelain NETTED PINK tutu with a bottom tier of delicate WHITE RUFFLES at the hem, which is also seen at the bodice and neckline, with a pink PORCELAIN ROSE embellishment on her skirt! As with many of these ballerinas there is usually some unavoidable breakage to the lace netting, noted for the most part at the neckline and a small area on the back of her skirt; otherwise, there are no chips, cracks, hairlines or restorations-----just LOVELY! She stands in PAINTED GOLD ballet slippers, and is posed on a gold trimmed COLUMN BASE, and underneath is stamped in blue script "GERMANY, DRESDEN", bearing the signature crossed sword mark representing the manufacturer's mark.
We are showing her displayed next to our antique 13" French Fashion doll not only for scale purposes, but to demonstrate how FABULOUS these wonderful figurines look as companions to antique dolls, especially in this TINY SIZE----- the perfect DECORATIVE ITEM to showcase in your Poupee's salon or parlor as a MANTEL PIECE!
This EXQUISITE TINY SIZE ANTIQUE GERMAN DRESDEN MINIATURE PORCELAIN BALLERINA FIGURINE is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-------a PRIMA BALLERINA in a rare DIMINUTIVE SIZE!
