3 Antique Bathing Beauties, Germany, Bisque China, One on Turtle
Lot of Three
This trio of bathing beauties are all authentic antiques, so these little ladies can be excused if they show their age. The flapper on the turtle is china and is 4 inches long and 3.25 inches. There is wear to the blue paint of her bathing suit and cap, her facial features, and on the green and brown tortoise. This piece is incised underneath with an obscured number and "Germany" and is also stamped "75" in red. Also of china, the belle in the blue bathing suit is 2.75 inches long and is 1.25 inches high. There is wear on the blue low cut swimsuit and on the paint of hair and face. There are no marks..The third bathing belle is bisque and by Hertwig and Company of Germany. Her green bathing cap and light purple bathing suit with red straps once were textured with bisque "snow, but much has worn away over time. She wears painted red slippers and is 3.25 inches long and 1.5 inches tall. Along back of her left hip and thigh, she is incised "Germany 5684" Although timeworn, these these bathers have their charms and would be a great project for a restorer or a doll artist who could use them to make molds. One price buys all three!
