    vetraio50
    (674 items)

    A Saturday morning "early-bird" purchase just a year ago. I had just arrived at the market when I saw the figure. I bought her, put her in a box and safely got her home on a bus. She is a terra cotta figure, slip cast, partially glazed with gilded hair and hand-painted decoration to the face.
    She is 16.1 ins or 41 cm tall.
    Josef Lorenzl designed her for Goldscheider in 1939. My figure is later for sure, when Germany used pre-war designs to get back on their feet.
    The form is called "adagio" which means 'at ease'.
    I think it refers to the slow, enfolding movement of a dancer leading to an extension of the leg. It's meant to grab attention with a breath-taking gymnastic leap or leg extension.
    Strike a pose!
    I'm still shocked that she has survived this long in perfect condition. People have been looking after her well for the last sixty years.
    I mean to keep it that way.

      What number does the base stamp have? Is it made in Austria or Germany?
    10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Hi from Sydney, Amanda.
      She is marked with a black stamp Goldscheider and West Germany.
      Incised into the clay is 8462, underneath that is 133 VII.
      Width: 29cm
      Height: 41cm

      She retains her original silver sticker as well on the front of the base.

      By the way your Hagenauer figures and the Susi Singers are fabulous!

    13. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Sorry Ivan49. I'll take another picture and post it for you!
    14. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Hi Ivan! I've put in a photo of the base.
      Thanks again for your comment.
      I've found a similar terracotta figure 8462 which sold at Bukovskis in Stockholm, 5 May 2011, lot 886.
      They give a manufacture of 1953 - 1960. The original model was designed by Lorenzl c/1939.

      Reminds me of my hippie days:)

      Many thanks nldionne! My hippy days were more swathed in tie dye!
    30. nldionne nldionne, 6 years ago
      I was the real deal I thought. Many years ago. Flowers in the hair, cheap wine and Janis Joplin;)
    31. nldionne nldionne, 6 years ago
      Your girl has same pose as gargoyles
    32. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      Adagio is a ballet pose.
      They move to a certain point, hold it for just that moment to sink into the memory and move on to another motif.
      A distilled idea.
      Here in Oz I knew of the hippie movement in the US. I was still at school, rebelling and reading about the changes sweeping the world. Music was a means our generation used to unite across the planet before the times of the global net.

    33. nldionne nldionne, 6 years ago
      Things were so different. Everyone loved one another back then. Now the world hates and distrusts. We considered everyone our brother and sister.

      Thanks MANIKIN! I'll have a look.
    53. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Mani I just had a look at the drum majorette! What a stunner! A pinner's delight! Missing part of her baton! What did they call those girls who could spin a baton?
    54. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
      A Majorette Vet . She lead the band in the march . Isn't she similar to your beauty and did you see her price !
      A majorette is a person doing choreographed dance or movement, primarily baton twirling associated with marching bands during parades. It derives from girls' involvement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in drill and gymnastic teams or groups that used apparatuses similar to those found in rhythmic gymnastics. Majorettes can also twirl knives, fire knives, flags, light-up batons, and fire batons. They do illusions, cartwheels, and flips, and sometimes twirl up to four batons at a time. Majorettes are often confused with cheerleaders, when in fact, baton twirling is more closely related to rhythmic gymnastics rather than cheerleading.

      When I bought her I got her home on a bus. I did not have a car. I protected her in a box and very gingerly got her home. Travel and Goldscheider is a worry!
