Shades of pale green and ivory, 4’ high, on a 3” x 2 ½ “ matte ebony base. The figure is solid. No marks, age unknown.. The most delicate shading I have seen on porcelain. Appreciate comments, especially regarding this type of firing.

    1905-10?

    Hi ho2, whatcha doin' way back here? Boy, I wish I knew, she has no marks and the dealer I bought her from (in the '70s) had no clue. The porcelain seems very thin, the hues more built in than applied. Thanks for looking and waking her up, Jim

    i immediately thought 1905-10, for some reason. i can't tell from the pics, but i think her feet are bound, right? she looks pretty happy and relaxed despite the torture.

    Hello ho2, no, feet aren't bound, actually she is wearing round toed shoes with (in scale) thick soles. Doesn't show in my photos as well as it does under good magnification. (I had never noticed the soles before.) It's my understanding that women whose feet were bound did not wear shoes, the feet were quite pointed, and they were unable to walk.
    Best wishes, Jim
