Pincushion, Vintage Parian Girl in a Boat, Bisque, Unglazed Porcelain, Silk, Sewing Gift, Germany, Antique, Pin Cushion

Vintage bisque (unglazed porcelain) girl figurine with a matte finish was found in an antique store in Connecticut. These were popular in Germany around 1860-1880. Manufacturer's marking appears to say: Rose, G312, Germany. See Photo #5.

I'm not an expert, but this looks to be a parian figurine. The following quote is from Wikipedia:

The term parian refers to the appearance of the fine white parian marble of Paros, Greece. The UFDC (United Federation of Doll Collectors) accepted definition of these dolls is as follows: "Parian doll: doll made of fine white bisque (unglazed porcelain) without tinting. The features, hair and cheeks may be painted."

If you have expertise in this area, please convo me with any corrections. Thanks.

The girl and dog in the boat is vintage; the cushion is brand new. Pink silk cushion is generously filled with Silky Soft polyester fiberfill. High quality fiberfill makes a difference, and the level of squishyness of this cushion is very nice.

Two removable 3" long pins (pinsies) have glass beads. Some of the clear glass beads look like ice.

Item measures 6.25" tall (not including the pins), 6.5" wide, and 2.5" front to back. The cushion measures 3" x 1.5."

The back side of this item is unpaianted.

Add vinage charm to your sewing room or put a smile on the face of a friend. Perfect Hostess gift, Housewarming gift, Bridal Shower gift, Just Because.
