Lilian Harvey by Goldscheider
Designed by Stefan Dakon for Goldscheider in around 1926, this is the figure of Lilian Harvey, the British born actress and singer who became one of Germany’s most well-known silent movie stars.
She’s captured here striding purposefully forward, wearing a gorgeous dark red patterned dress, the hem of which she holds in one hand.
This lovely figure is mounted on a scalloped base and measures an imposing 47 cm high. There has been a little professional invisible restoration to part but this is not apparent except under the closest examination. Model no. 5625/92/8.
