Although it is mid-October, here in central Texas it is still in the mid-90s. Hoping to invoke cooler weather, here is a winsome miss sledding down a snow-covered slope on a wintry day.
Although unmarked, she has the typical elongated amber eyes with grey shading attributed to the German company of Fasold and Stauch. Of excellent china and beautifully decorated, this frosty flapper is 7.5 inches long.
However, the truth must be told, she is not a powder dish, although she makes a delightful one. I added the legs and marabou pseudo-powder puff. In fact, I think she was originally intended as a pipe rest. The hollow cone of the skirt is too shallow to hold powder, and it would tend to spill out, but it would securely cradle a man's pipe. Leda and her swan swain, who appeared earlier on this blog, is another pipe rest that often is mistaken for a powder dish.
The image appears to have been inspired by this 1928 French humor magazine cover, created by illustrator Georges Léonnec, who specialized in boudoir art and risqué cartoons.
