This fashionable fräulein clad in the epitome of Edwardian elegance takes her shaggy terrier for a stroll. Her formfitting gown of emerald green and black is textured fine flocking, giving it the appearance of fabric. This 7 inch tall bisque vase is incised “1071” on bottom back edge of vase.
She is part of a series of fashionable figures by Hertwig and Company of German, advertised in their catalogue as "Figuren mit Paperhüten und mit Tuchschur bemalt" (figures with paper hats and painted flocking). This lady has lost her original crepe paper hat and mohair wig, which someone has replaced with a turban of blonde mink. As this catalogue picture shows, she has lost not only her original headdress, but also her male companion, as the set was advertised as "Paar Modefiguren" (pair of fashion figures). The difference in the model number in the catalogue may be related to size, as the pictured set was advertised as 13 centimeters tall, or just over five inches in height.
