A marvelous porcelain figurine of a "Putto" or young boy with a lamb, designed by Kurt Steiner in the 1920's and produced by Schaubach Kunst circa 1940's. The Wallendorf company was acquired by Heinz Schaubach in 1932, along with a majority share of Unter Weiss Bach porcelain. The Schaubach name was dropped and reverted back to Wallendorf following the 1953 nationalization. Porcelain production began in the municipality of Wallendorf, Thuringia in 1763 and operated under numerous restructurings, including its 1953 nationalization under the East German government, until 2008.
This captivating Schaubach figurine features an adorable blue-eyed boy in a friendly exchange with a sweet young lamb. Exquisitely executed and detailed, finished in bisque porcelain with glazed accenting, this Schaubach figurine is in mint condition, free from chipping, cracking or repairs.
Marked at the base with Schaubach's crown mark used between 1926 and 1953, impressed shape #1386 and non-factory etched markings.
