Naughty Bisque Schafer Vater Lady With Rooster
Woman with Rooster
Schafer and Vater
Naughty, Risque, Erotica
This naughty novelty of a woman and her fine feathered friend is part of a series by the German firm of Schafer and Vater of lovely lasses, clad in clinging chemises and black stockings, caught in compromising positions with very large roosters. Schafer loved to play with double entendres; just think of another name for rooster (hint, "COCK-a-doodle-doo!"). These pretty women and their poultry paramours are scarce and highly sought after by collectors. Of excellent sharp bisque, this risque figurine is 5 inches long and 3 inches high. It is beautifully modeled and detailed, from the waves in the woman's hair to the folds of her chemise to the rooster's feathers. Her face is delicately painted, with one stroke brows, blue eyes with black pupils and red and black lid lines, and parted smiling lips (she looks a bit tired, but happy). It is Incised underneath "5000" and with the Schafer and Vater sunburst mark. A similar figurine is pictured on pages 88 and 89 in my book, Bawdy Bisques and Naughty Novelties: German Bathing Beauties and Their Risque Kin. As is typical of these pieces, there is wear on the lady's cold-painted black stockings. She has a small hair-thin kiln line, not longer than a grain of rice, hidden just under her chin, where it looks like a shadow. The end of the rooster's third tail feather has been broken off and painted over and there is a small chip on his comb, but these flaws are only noticeable upon closer inspection and do not distract from the ribald humor of this unusual erotica.
