Goldscheider Terracotta Dutch Girl

Item Description

Terracotta bust by the artist F. du Prémont for Goldscheider dating from 1897-98.

Finished in shades of dark bronze and gold, the young Dutch girl is modelled wearing an off-the-shoulder frock and cape and a traditional lacy head-dress.  She’s looking downwards with a somewhat impish smile on her face – perhaps she knows something we don’t…  

Numbered 1402 and marked with the Fr. Goldscheider signature but not signed by the artist.  We know who he is however from the Dechant/Goldscheider volume, page 320.

Approximately 47 cm high and in good condition with a few typical minor marks to the patina and one small chip to the back of the base which can be seen in the sequence of photos.

Lit:  Dechant/Goldscheider p. 320  –  also Pinhas pp. 34 & 97
