Elegant Dancing Couple
Exquisite early Goldscheider ceramic dancing couple, the lady and gentleman both looking very elegant as they glide around the floor, surely dancing to a waltz.

Dating from 1903-05 and bearing the signature of the artist E. Tell who produced several fine pieces for Goldscheider.
