This kneeling nubile nude is strikes a shy and unusual pose. From the days when women had curves, and lots of them, her voluptuous body is superbly sculpted, from her gesturing hands to her bare feet. Her sweetly smiling face is delicately detailed, with intaglio eyes and parted full lips. As big as she is beautiful, this bathing belle is 4 inches tall and long. Her arms and legs are free from her body, requiring multiple molds to create this complex pose. Of good sharp bisque with a slightly porous feel, she is unmarked, but certainly of German quality. Considering her fragility, she is in wonderful condition for her age, with no repairs, breaks, or missing digits. There is a small pea-sized rough patch on her left buttock and two smaller ones on each heel, possibly from the firing kiln. These factory flaws are not noticeable when she is displayed, but do attest to her age and authenticity. There is some slight loss of color to her cold-painted features and hair. Think how lovely this lady would look posed on a shelf or in a miniature boudoir!
