Very unusual Bavarian porcelain vanity dish with a MASKED Pierrette aka Pierrot with red jewels inserted into her costume. This is from my own personal collection which I am parting with after more than 40 years.
Half doll related vanity or puff dish and figure have a luster glaze. The dish is blue luster with a black outline and white inner surface. The Pierrette figure has such wonderful detailing from her very FLAPPER hairstyle and mask, right down to her casual seated pose. Her flowing jacket is a butterscotch color luster with standing white ruffled collar with yellow trim. Her loose fitting pajama pants are the same butterscotch luster with black trim. She wears flat black slippers.
The dish itself has a circumference of 4.5 inches and is about 7/8 inch high at the rim. The seated doll measures 3 inches from base of jacket to top of head. The base is stamped Bavaria in green. See photos.
Condition is excellent with no damage other than typical wear to the paint chips, cracks or repairs. The is a little molding flake out of the under side rim where it came out of the mold. This is typical of more difficult molds and was done in the making.
This is a wonderful and unusual Art Deco decorative vanity dish deserving of a spot in a half doll collection, boudoir item collection, or puff dish collection. I've never seen another one like it.
