This fashionable flapper poses confidently in the finest beachwear of the late 1920s. Of excellent china and beautifully modeled and decorated, she is 7 inches long and 5.5 inches high.
This same superb seaside siren is pictured in the catalog of Hertwig and Company, simply entitled "Badedame."
Even without the catalog, there is no question regarding her manufacturer, as underneath she is stamped in blue with the Hertwig mark featuring the silhouette of a cat inside the line drawing of a house, with a capital "H" tucked into the attic. The mark is a play on the name of the city of Katzhütte (Cat Hut), where the Hertwig factory was located. She is also incised "4533," which matches the model number in the catalog.
