Damm Lady with Umbrella Figure

This is a great figurine made by Damm using the old Hoechst molds around the mid 19th century. Damm was actually not a porcelain but a fine earthenware maker. Thus these pieces look quite different than the old Hoechst ones and are much lighter in weight and also a bit bigger in size as earthenware did not shrink as much as porcelain during the firing process. Quite charming though and very collectable and rare.This is a figurine of a young lady / girl that is dressed very well and colorfully holding an umbrella for shade or rain standing on a typical grass base. The figurine is painted very nicely and looks very much like the Hoechst pieces. She is 5.375 inches tall, 2 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Marked underneath with the mold number 182 as well as the blue wheel mark with the letter D. which is their typical mark. The figurine is in good condition with a chip/flake to the cover in her hair as well as a chip to the end piece of the cloth that decorated her front right by her right shoulder. Neither is obvious when on display and neither takes away from the piece at all! There is also a small flake/chip by the bottom back edge of her skirt again nothing that shows when on display. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
