Boerner Lady

This is a figurine made by Volkstedt around 1920. Volkstedt was founded in 1762 and is one of the few makers of the Thuringia region that are still around today. This figurine is special because it was made by the famous Emil Paul Börner who later worked at Meissen and became one of the most famous modellers of this time period. This is one of my favorite pieces made by him! It is of a nude lady holding a cloth in front of her bottom area on a nice puce base. No detail was spared at all! Very much in the Art Nouveau taste. I usually prefer the 18th century stuff but this one was a must have :) This figurine is in perfect condition. The piece is marked with the underglaze blue mark used from 1915 to about 1936. Also impressed EB (for Emil Borner) 110. The figure is 7.25 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide and 3 inches deep. Please e-mail me for more information or photos.
