Offering a beautiful high kicking antique ballerina figurine from Ackerman & Fritz Germany. This lovely piece measures 6 in height from base to tips of fingers and is in excellent condition with no missing fingers or chips, crack etc. Even her delicate Dresden lace tutu is all intact with no crumbled or missing portions. She is stamped on the base simply, GERMANY. The back of her stand has the blue crown F mark of Ackerman & Fritz.
She dates to about 1920. The porcelain figurines from this company are superior. Her face is not a pretty blank...
It shows such energy and focus as she kicks her leg high. Her fingers and arms are also very finely shaped.
The movement of her body follows the impetus of her effort. Wonderful antique piece of porcelain art sculpture.I have three different Dresden ballerinas all listed separately.
