ANTIQUE German Bisque Bathing Beauty DOUBLE FIGURE / PAIR. By Galluba & Hoffman RARE & LOVELY! & ribbon bathing suits (frail), mohair wigs. Appx 6" x 3" x 2.5. One of the rarest & most desirable of Galluba & Hoffman's bathing beauties from the 1920s.
Two full figured ladies, one standing with right arm out & left draped over the back of her companion, who's seated on a two-step green seat, one leg pointed out & away from seat, the other leg bent & foot back to bottom step. Standing lady has pink molded & painted ballet-type shoes; seated lady has blue ones. It's unusual to have original suits, even if frail. Well-marked on base (see last photo).
Some almost inevitable old minor damage: standing figure has old repaired fracture on her left shoulder where the arm joins--the suit strap covers it; original silk net bathing suits are frail & worn/torn in several places; otherwise excellent. A tour-de-force example of figurine making from the Art Deco period. A gorgeous, so rare & lovely piece to add to your collection!
This was the crown jewel of my late husband's collection. Please look at all the photos as they are part of the.
