Item/Description: Antique/vintage ca. early-1900s to 1930s Art Deco/Art Nouveau “Germany 7003" hand-painted porcelain half-doll flapper/opera singer/French Court lady skirt-shaped/design whisk brush figurine.
***This exquisitely beautiful china figural girl is as functional as she is a decorative object d’ art, making her much more than just an ornamental addition to one’s decorative arts/bric-a-brac collection.
The brush portion of this half-doll is artistically designed to simulate a lady’s full-length/formal long skirt, with stylish vertical stripes in multi-colored alternating parfait hues of rose pink and pastel yellow.
Because of her whisk broom base, she oh-so-delightfully and cleverly serves as a clothes/clothing brush OR a hat brush OR a tabletop crumb/crumbs brush/scraper!
One could even get really creative and utilize her as a vanity table accouterment for purposes of applying loose dusting powder, as her bristles are somewhat supple and not so stiff as to preclude this optional usage.
How can anyone resist this lovely, elegant woman, who is posing ever-so-endearingly and entreatingly with her arms dramatically clutched to her breasts like an opera singer/stage actress performing her little heart out while earnestly appealing for you to "Please make me yours!" :~)
