A Little Art Deco Beauty from Volkstedt Porcelain

(Last Updated On: April 13, 2018)

I found this wonderful little nude in a general Google search in some broad category (something like “little girl sculpture”), which I do from time to time. Often I get these little objets d’art in such searches as they are up for auction on some site or other. The artist for this piece was not provided at whatever site I took these from, but the manufacturer was given as Volkstedt Porcelain, a company based in Rudolstadt, Thuringia, Germany and founded in the 1760s by Georg Heinrich Macheleid.

This piece is a simple and elegant portrait of a young girl between ages 10 and 13, with delicate facial details and a graceful pose. No color, no bells and whistles here, but she doesn’t need it. This is simply a well-executed piece that any owner could be proud of.
