Antique Art Deco Porcelain Dancer Ballerina Lady Woman Figurine Figure Pierrette
They are more well known for producing jars, vases, and other ceramic kitchen knickknacks; full figurines such as this one are much less commonly seen. However, this piece is remarkable in its own right! It features what I have always thought of as being a female clown, but she could also be a ballerina, or some other type of dancer as well. She is very well modeled, beautifully painted, and is such a delight to look at! Her face is just exquisite with full red lips, delicately blushed cheeks, downturned brown eyes, fabulously long arching brows, and striking black hair! She is surrounded by oodles of ruffles everywhere and her Art Deco stance is simply irresistible! It is truly a wonderful piece! She is in very good condition, with some very minor chips at the front of the base (pictured), and there is also some roughness along the edges of some of the ruffles, but I believe this is how this piece was made and do not consider it to be damage. There is also some crazing to the base. The piece is large at 11.5 inches high and 6.5 inches wide at the base. It is marked with the red Bihl Czechoslovakia backstamp. I believe it dates to the 1920s or 1930s. A terrific piece to add to any Art Deco collection!
