This very happy hussy, holding high her wine glass, is of heavy bronze. She has been cold painted to add a touch of color. Although unmarked, she is most likely of Austrian or German origin.
As an added treat, this trollop's dress lifts off, exposing her ample, and very detailed, anatomy. She is just over three inches high from the bottom of the chair to her uplifted glass.
And if that is not naughty enough, there is an opening underneath that would have once held an atomizer and a tiny hole between her legs for the escaping spray.
Another metal minx. Her more slender shape and short tresses suggest she may date from the 1920s. Like the preceding Victorian vixen, she is superbly sculpted. I have seen a similar figurine, with a removable metal fox fur that draped down her bare body. Unmarked, she is 4.5 inches tall.
She also has the connections for a hidden atomizer and a tiny hole between her legs.
These antique erotic bronzes are very collectible and reproductions have consequently appeared on the market. There are high-quality reproductions from Austria, cast from the original molds and often cold painted, as well as poorer quality copies, often from China or India. These latter pieces have blurred or missing details and clumsy sculpting. In this modern copy, the lass has lost her glass, as well as her squirting capacity. In this piece, not only does the dress lift off, but she can also be removed from her chair.
Compared to the original, many of the details, such as the tassels of the chair or the tufted upholstery, are poorly rendered, if at all. Note how in the copy, the woman's full figure has been slimmed down to appeal to more modern tastes and her face and form are rather stiff and roughly rendered. Sadly, it is not uncommon for unscrupulous dealers to offer these new pieces as antiques.
