Vintage 1980's Goebel Porcelain Figurines, Fashions on Parade Series including At The Tea Dance, Edwardian Grace and The Cosmopolitan - Set of 3.
Produced by Goebel in the 1980's, The Fashions on Parade Series was short lived and was discontinued in 1990, making some of the designs rather rare. Each figure measures 8.5" tall and 2.75" wide.
From left to right are:
At The Tea Dance, in dark pink she holds a white wrap and is reminiscent of 1920's style.
Edwardian Grace (my personal favorite), she holds a small purse and is resplendent in emerald green with a wide brimmed floral hat.
The Cosmopolitan is business like in her blue skirt, blouse and cloche hat. She carries an envelope purse and stands against a white base.
Based on design and their numbers, my guess is that At The Tea Dance and The Cosmopolitan were from the same series (within the Fashions on Parade series) and Edwardian Grace from the series that included other turn of the century figures. They are marked with Goebel W Germany and the numbers 16 281 and 16 280 21 respectively. Edwardian Grace is marked differently with the name on the base in addition to Goebel W Germany but without the numbers that are on the other two.
They are all in perfect condition and truly beautiful pieces in every way.
