Nude Lady and Borzoi*

Item Description

Designed by Josef Lorenzl and made in 1936-38 by the German company Schuster, this is a delightful ceramic sculpture of a slim, nude lady standing in front of her Borzoi dog with one hand lightly touching his neck.

To all intents and purposes this is a Goldscheider piece as, after the occupation of Austria by the Nazis, Joseph Schuster was appointed head of that company until the end of the war when it was returned to the Goldscheider family.

Marked beneath the base and with the model number 7463/158/7.

There is a small manufacturing firing crack visible on one finger on close inspection – see photos – but otherwise it is in excellent condition.  The height is 39 cm.

Lit:  Dechant/Goldscheider p. 460  –  also Pinhas p. 157
