Goldscheider Water Maiden
Seldom seen Goldscheider statue by Otto Petri of a young maiden carefully bending forward on one knee and leaning towards the source of a spring, so as to fill with fresh water the two vessels she’s carrying.
Painted in pleasingly natural earthy shades with gilding to her dress and headscarf.
This has got to be a rare find as it’s not catalogued in either of the Dechant/Goldscheider or Pinhas reference books.
Probably made in the very early 1900’s, 64 cm high and with the usual Goldscheider markings. Numbered 3125/196/2, it is in lovely aged condition with just a few very minor paint nibbles.
