This very unusual mermaid by William Goebel is made to adorn the edge of an aquarium. Of excellent bisque, this sultry sea siren is 4.5 inches long.
Her folded arms are angled away from her body, forming a little ledge to fit over the lip of a fish tank. This perch is rather perilous, as a little bump can easily dislodge her, sending this fragile finned femme crashing to the floor. I suspect not too many of these nubile naiads survived.
She is stamped “Bavaria” in black on her left hip, a mark often used by Goebel.
