    It was Tuesday and I went to my regular 'oppie' down the road and came back with this piece of porcelain. The body of the boy appears bisque and is painted. The top of the toadstool however has been glazed and has underglaze decoration.

    Thanks to KIVATINITZ , we have a solution .... He's CZECH!

    He has a painted artist mark of 'ur' and a stamped dark brown '9' or is it a '6'?

    Impressed in the porcelain are some numbers: 26/52.

    The young boy's eyes are wide open at the sight of the beetle below ... he has a flower in his left hand on the toadstool.

    Looks as if he is going to whack the beetle or lady bird.

    Michievous!

    17.5 cm tall .... 6.9 inches

    Just cute!

      I adore figurines of childs, and yes think it is German because of the motive, child and mushroom. Have you seen this one? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROYAL-DUX-FIGURINE-OF-A-CHILD-ON-A-TOADSTOOL-OR-MUSHROOM-NUMBER-925-/400851448735?pt=UK_PotteryPorcelain_Glass_PotteryPorcelain_China_SM&hash=item5d549bb39f
      perhaps it is Royal Dux also

      The name I have come up with so far as a possible designer is Elly Strobach Königová.
    29. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      So the idea is that it is an early design by Elly Strobach Königová * 5.2.1908 - † 14.3.2002 Mind you there is no signature on this item.

      This is a link to a similar item still produced there:
      http://eshop.royaldux.cz/cs/produkty/lidske-motivy/detske-motivy/elly-strobach-koenigova/chlapec-s-muchomurkou/478

      From the Royal Dux site is this translation of her biography.

      Elly Strobach - Königová nee Kvasni?ková, was born on February 5, 1908 in Ústí nad Labem. For the academic director of the era. sculptor Johannes Watzala graduated from the State Vocational School of Ceramics in Teplice and after graduation began working with Duchcov porcelain. Elly Strobach Königová - drawing Francis Rabel

      Especially in the 30s and 40s was a respected corporate tribal designer, successful were the following designs and decorative figural porcelain in the Art Deco style. The first luxury art style that bears the main features of Cubism, Futurism and Art Nouveau, gradually gained immense popularity among the general public. Its typical features and has been reproduced on a massive scale and also found their place in the production Duchcov porcelain factory.

      They are still posing a successful female nudes, fashionable dancer (also in exclusive forms of table lamps) even very popular figurines plump children and humanized animals bearing the signature "Elly Strobach" or "Königová" treasured item in a menu auction houses. Many of their models are still part of the production program of factory Royal Dux.

      Elizabeth Kvasni?ková not an easy life. She was first married to bohosudovského surgeon. Strobach, but soon became a widow when her husband succumbed to acute tuberculosis. Her book then enjoyed even in the 50s, when Duchcovská porcelánka experiencing really tragic "Cultural Revolution" statement of most of its existing production of kitsch. Although this blunder was soon overcome and sentenced, irretrievable losses are difficult to correct later. Now most models had denounced in the coming years, when the porcelain factory again rallied, the biggest response in the world.

      Elly Strobachová, twice married Königová, however, had until her retirement to face the ideological dictates of evaluation committees, and so in the second half of the 60s went with my sister and her husband in exile in Germany. At the end of her life she lived in Geeretsriedu at Munich, where she lived to a great age. She died on 14 March 2002, shortly after her 94th birthday.
