A Very Sweet Piano Baby. A little girl feeds her big Saint Bernard puppy. C 1900 Victorian Era. A very rare piece from our own collection. Beautifully painted and modeled, this piece is Heubach quality. Though marked only with impressed numbers. It is German or perhaps British. A BIG piece, it’s striking on display. Heavy, solid, it weighs 5. And I’m happy to say it’s in excellent condition as well, with just a slight. Bit of gold rub to the bowl, and a few tiny inconspicuous firing flaws. Which you always find on these large antique bisques. What is a piano baby? As the name suggests, these were porcelain babies that lived on top of pianos. During the Victorian and Edwardian eras, every well-appointed parlor had a piano. And every respectable piano wore a fancy shawl, or piano drapery. Were often works of art in themselves: embroidered silk or woven tapestries with. Tassels or handmade lace edging. Piano babies sat on top of the shawl. Ensuring that the shawl did. Not slide off the piano, because. A proper piano must never drop its shawl.. Here are other Piano Babies I have for sale. All photos are taken with daylight bulbs for accurate color. Though monitor colors may vary. I have lost count of how many times over the years I have personally received a broken porcelain item due to poor packing – that is heartbreaking and I don’t want any customer of mine to ever have that experience! These are items from my own collection. I’ve taken great care to provide an accurate description and have provided many large clear photos. The high resolution photos are part of the description. By purchasing from me you agree to these terms. I value my customers and always do my best to ensure you have a happy shopping experience; your patronage is very much appreciatedThank you!

A Gorgeous Huge Piano Baby. Two Sisters and Their Brother. Isn’t this a wonderful piece? A fine old Victorian-era German trio of piano babies at play. Marching happily along the beach, this little group exudes the contentment. Of a perfect carefree childhood day. The sisters grasp each other’s hands. As their hair blows in the wind. Their brother in his cute sailor shirt has manufactory holes. I’ve made him a little fishing pole to hold – it’s made from a painted. Wood dowel and some hemp- fiber twine. This piece is unmarked though it’s Heubach quality, with amazing modeling and painting. Intaglio eyes, two stroke brows and lids, carved open mouths, the usual lovely German doll faces. Heavy, solid, it weights over 7 pounds! And I’m happy to say it’s in excellent condition as well, with just a slight bit of gold rub to the detailing on the clothes, and a few tiny inconspicuous firing flaws which you always find on these old German bisques. (illustration not included in sale). Inspired by this Victorian painting called Seahorses. The children are using their imaginations and playing as children do. The boy is imagining he is riding a cart pulled by horses; his sisters have happily stepped into this role. Since they are at the sea, the girls are “sea” horses. The boy has tied rope to the girls’ dresses and they all seem to be having a great time playing this make-believe game. It would be fun to set the statue up the same way; there are factory holes in the boy’s hands and also under both girls’ arms meant for just this purpose. Quality workmanship – look at the carefully carved detailing on the woven-straw hat. And note how the red strap is artfully threaded through an opening in the beautifully modeled hand. What is a piano baby? As the name suggests, these were porcelain babies that lived on top of pianos. During the Victorian and Edwardian eras, every well-appointed parlor had a piano. And every respectable piano wore a fancy shawl, or piano drapery. Were often works of art in themselves: embroidered silk or woven tapestries with. Tassels or handmade lace edging. Piano babies sat on top of the shawl. Ensuring that the shawl did. Not slide off the piano, because. A proper piano must never drop its shawl.. Here are other Piano Babies I have for sale, also a large pair, 12. Photos taken with daylight bulbs for accurate color. Though monitor colors may vary. I have lost count of how many times over the years I have personally received a broken porcelain item due to poor packing – that is heartbreaking and I don’t want any customer of mine to ever have that experience!

Antique German Bisque Sisters. In Miniature Brass Beds. One girl is saying her prayers; her little sister is already fast asleep in the bed beside hers. A wonderful vignette, the best of Old German workmanship. The bisque is superbly modeled, from the rumpled bedding with the deeply carved lace across the pillows, to the sweet little girls with lovely realistic faces. Delightful and very rare pieces from a lifetime collector. 6.5×5.5. Late 19th to early 20th C (Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Jugendstil eras). A note on the wonderful beds. They are a very nice example of. The German art form gesamptkunstwerk, or synthesis of the arts, which was THE art form that was strived for during the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. It is the marriage of mixed media resulting in a seamless product that is considered the ideal work of art. The harmony of the design places the emphasis on neither the bisque nor the brass, but on a perfectly balanced synergy of the two. These are quality brass beds. They have all the makings of Marklin pieces. The embossing on the frames is gorgeous. Take a closer look here at one of the beds; and then, just to be assured of the quality and attention to detail, compare it to the embossed mount on one of my crystal Baccarat boxes (next photo). (shown for comparison, not included in sale). Here are more photos of the sleeping girl. Made by a fine German maker, certainly the quality is reminiscent of Heubach, but the b isque is marked with model numbers only. Bisque is in remarkably excellent condition. Brass has minor signs of use and wear in accordance with its age. Note that frame embossing as well as ball feet are different on each bed. See/enlarge photos; they are part of the description. Photos taken with daylight bulbs; monitor colors may vary. Please see my listings for more German miniatures. I have a similar piece, Limbach twins in a brass stroller, for sale. From a wonderful collection acquired over a lifetime. Many more rare and wonderful things to list, coming soon.. Terms of Sale – Please read.
