    These figurines are just two of several Carlos has got for ages. They were designed by Hans Stangl between 1953 and 1956. I have seen at least seven different models (and some day Carlos will show the the others he's got, so I'll know how much are missing in our collection ;) )h. I'm not sure Stangl was one of the first ones in using this crackeled finishing in mid-century porcelains, but it suits them so well I think these figurines wouldn't be of any importance if they had a glossy white uniform surface (by the way, I've seen a pic of a matte black one online... it doesn't look this interesting, really)

    Pics 2 and 3 show each figurine as seen from different angles... I think that's vital to understand them, as Stangle stylized them in such a way that they look great in almost every position.

    On the last pic you can see an scanned ad from a 1955 copy of the famous Italian magazine Domus we've got at home (Mmmm... those magazines will make an interesting post ;) )

    And now, a confession: when I first ever shaw them asked Carlos: when did Rosenthal started making such awful stuff? Now I can't claim I love them, but I think they're not that awful after all :)

      Was Carlos ticked that you insulted his Stangl?
      I have some Stangl somewhere...will have to try and dig it up.

      Hello, I write a book about bone china made in Chile in the 60's decade. I would like to use one of your images for my book since a copy of the donna seduta was made in bone china here in Chile. If so, I ask if you can send me the photo of the magazine where both figures with the data of that magazine, name, edition and year, please to indicate it at the bottom of the photo. thank you very much.
