Mid-Size ‘Captured Bird’ by Goldscheider*
A mid-sized version of the classic Goldscheider figure “Captured Bird”, designed and sculpted by Josef Lorenzl in 1922.
Portraying the young dancer Niddy Impekoven, striding to the left with her arms outstretched and her gossamer wing dress draping in such a way as to look like butterfly wings.
These were all individually hand-painted and this example is decorated in the sought after spider’s web pattern, with gaily coloured butterflies contrasting beautifully with the background shade of the dress.
She stands on a black socle, supported by a vase of pink roses which bears the Lorenzl signature.
Made circa 1925 and numbered on the underside 5960/568/16 with a height of 39.5 cm.
