‘Oh no, she’s going to kiss me’
Charming and amusing pair of young children designed by Stefan Dakon and made by the firm Keramos around the late 1930’s.
The boy, hands behind his back and looking somewhat bashful, is about to receive a kiss from the little girl beside him, who is standing up on her toes to reach, with eyes closed. Very cute facial expressions and typically Austrian.
With the usual Keramos stamp on the underside, together with impressed numbers 2147 and 3, and the artist’s name Dakon.
A touch under 20 cm high and in excellent condition.
