Goldscheider Ceramic Bust

Item Description

Most busts from the Goldscheider manufactory were produced in terracotta.  This is one of the rarer glazed ceramic pieces. Dating from around 1903 it is by the artist J. Louger who sculpted several other figures for the same company in the early 1900’s.

Depicting a young Dutch girl wearing a traditional bonnet and loose fitting shawl, it is in lovely pastel shades of green and creamy white, with just a suggestion of golden yellow in her hair.  She’s looking slightly downward and to her left with a peaceful and quiet expression.  Unusually, the slightly elongated base shows a lakeside scene with a rocky foreshore and trees in the background, together with a streaky cloudy sky.  This combination of the three-dimensional figure and the landscape beneath results in a very pleasing overall look.

Signed by the artist and numbered 2491/54/10, this bust is in very good condition with just a couple of small chips to the glaze at the back and rim.  42.5 cm in height.

Lit: Dechant/Goldscheider p. 361
