    LOUMANAL
    (425 items)

    Some people call these pretty Girl Figurines "Courtesans" but Renaissance Girl sounds more appropriate. I purchased this figurine as a gift for my wife at an Antique store in the mi-70's. She measures 10 1/2" tall by 7" at the widest and she probably had a male counterpart when she was produced at the Barovier & Toso (Murano) glassworks in the 1950's. She has been in the background of many photos of items that I uploaded here at CW so the time has come to give her, her 15 minutes of fame. RER

      Very nice figurine!
      To me, she seems wearing the same hat than in Venise Carnaval ?
