This will be the last post on the series of sensual sirens attached to green precolored bisque toothpick or match holders, all apparently by the same mystery maker. Ms. #389 appeared earlier on this blog. Of sharp bisque with excellent modeling and decoration, this 5 inch tall literate lovely is incised “5513" between the back legs of her chair (Ms. #440 is marked "5516" and Ms. #504 is incised "5193," further supporting the supposition that they were indeed by the same company.) Once there was a green jasperware container of some sort attached to the right side, but now only two bits of green bisque remain.
Whoever the manufacturer was, the company seems to really liked women and wine. Ms. #534 carries a big bubble of bubbly, while her sister holds out her wine glass to be filled. These two buxom imbibing belles from my blog posting of December 4, 2011 both pose by precolored bisque containers shaped like champagne corks. The beauty in blue holds up her champagne flute to a rosy cheek, while the other in orange pours herself a drink.
