Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Here is a pretty porcelain figurine of a fine lady in her beautiful gown and bonnet carrying a tiny pocketbook.
I would date to to the middle half of the last century or maybe a little earlier. My educated guess is late 1940s to mid 1950s.
It is not marked so I can't tell you the manufacturer. I know that Inarco and Napco made some of these and so did Lefton China.
She has a bit of a southern belle Gone With The Wind look by her full gown, bonnet and the ringlets in her hair. Perhaps her gown was made with the green draperies?
Actually her gown is more of a charcoal color and her under-slip is a light gray.
There are tiny florets that adorn the front of her gown and they are a cream color.
Gilt accents are all around the figurine and there are no signs of excessive wear.
The florets that adorn her gown feel a bit rough but I believe that they were made this way and that they are not chipped, or if they are then it would be considered a fleabite or tinier. I thought it worthy of mention but it really is the tiniest imperfection.
She stands about 7 3/4" in height and is about 5 1/2" wide at the base.
I thank you for your interest and invite you to view my other fine vintage items.
