This fine dresden figurine has an elegant presence: an aristocratic lady is dressed in her finest ballgown holding a fan. She has a beautifully painted face and lots of detail from her carefully molded and painted necklace to her highly decorative fan. She stands 8 1/2" tall and is 6 1/2" wide. The bottom of her fan was professionally restored in addition to the tip of a pinkie. The repairs are nicely done. She has beautiful colors: the gold contrasts nicely with the aqua color of her gown. She has crossed lines with feathers. It isn't Meissen, it is French and made by Achille Bloch. It looks so much like a traditional German Dresden type figurine. It is a nice heavy piece of excellent quality. Layaway is available as long as it is paid in 3 monthly installments!
