Adorable, antique dancing children porcelain figurine from Goebel Wilhelmsfeld Oeslau manufacture.
1914-1920 production, this model is believed to be from 1917, old narrow ducal crown WG mark and painters letter J.
Intricately painted with polychrome, blue grey and pink with tones of light brown and cream.
Life like, amazing detail of two young dancing children (brother sister maybe) who's faces express joy and delight, dressed in 1910s attire. Very cute and skillfully crafted.
Rare model of Goebel's few remaining, antique children's series which was brought out during WW1.
Well proportioned 3 dimensional design, in perfect condition, only on the base stand is a narrow hairline which runs 1/4 way along the base, it has no bearing on the structural soundness though and is barely visible.
The figurine itself is solid and stands firm, no restorations, chips or cracks, no colour loss.
Stunning piece, absolutely charming and timeless from one of Germany's highest regarded porcelain manufacturers.
Molds for these don't exist anymore, meaning they are highly regarded collector's pieces.Measuring approx. 12.5cm high, 9cm wide and 5cm depth.
