Whereas one might assume after just a brief glance this wonderful Art Deco era ballet dancer where indeed a porcelain “ figurine “, one of extreme quality and equal to, or perhaps even superior than, the highly collectible “ bathing ladies “, this remarkable and high quality piece is indeed two separately made porcelain pieces- an extremely rare and high quality “ half doll “, AND the bottom half a separately modeled “ pair of legs “ with integral attached flared round flat top, with feet firmly and originally modeled to be permanently affixed to the square but diamond-shaped base. The beautiful ( half doll ) top part has gold hair in 1920-s “ flapper “ fashion , dangling gold earrings, right arm touched back of neck, and left arm touching top of head. The strapless costume at midsection (and totally covering the junction of the two porcelain pieces) is original, made of gold braid thread and ruffled light green silk short skirt also highlighted in gold thread . The ballet slippers on the base are accented with gold luster. There are no markings on the base. Height top to bottom is 8 ½” ( 21cm ). A marvelous lady with all parts “ custom-made “ for this figure alone!! Excellent original condition!!
