A really sweet and special set of turn-of-the-century German bisque miniatures. Two circus clowns and their pink pig partners entertain the crowds. From our own collection and not easy to come by, especially as a pair. Head is re-glued on standing clown, hard to see without a loupe, you can enlarge the top photo to see it, not apparent on display. Possibly made by Hertwig, Heubach, Schafer Vater or some similar fine German bisque toy and doll maker of the early 20th century.These beautiful little bisque pieces were actually circus toys for children in the early 1900s. Many of this type were cold painted and the paint wore off over time, but on this fine little pair the paint is fired on and so it is still in excellent shape.
Many of these little bisque toys didn't survive over the years. This pair was passed down to us and has been sitting in a cabinet forever and a day, safe and sound. Having a drink after work! Photographed with daylight bulbs for accurate color, though. Please see my listings for other wonderful German bisque miniatures.
