Vintage Porcelain Art Nouveau Style Figurine Sea Maiden on Shell Von Schierholz PMP Porcelain German Bavarian Statue


A stunning porcelain hand painted figure of a maiden or water nymph reaching over a large pink conch shell that has floating lily pads inside.

Marked with the Von Schierholz "PMP Porcelain" stamp and also the word "painted" in blue on the bottom with a production number. Manufactured at the Porcelaine Factory in Plaue, Germany

Circa 1973, this is the last year The Von Shierholz company produced these fabulous one of a kind Art Nouveau style figurines. We have seen the same woman with cherub caught in a wave and a woman in pink being swept away by the sea. Each figure is somewhat rare and exquisitely executed.

Measures approx 8" long and 6.5" tall

Condition: the tips of her fingers on the hand reaching behind her has the ends missing, her hair appears to have some crazing though it could be done on purpose to give a "net" effect, we can't decide as the crazing seems too perfect on just her hair, but we are mentioning this to allow viewers to make their own assumption. Also the paint is not flesh tone on her lower arms but this was original to the making, again we not necessarily damage or an issue but needs noting to make an accurate assessment.
