This blog already features one engaging enchantress, but this bosom belle rides her original besom with a wooden handle and bisque bristles. Of excellent sharp bisque, she is 7 inches tall and is beautifully and realistically modeled.
Her expression is lively, with a little wicked glint in her intaglio eyes and molded teeth visible between her full smiling lips.
These delicious damsels in their domino masks examine their cache of candy corn from a successful night of trick or treating (I will leave it to others to make the obligatory "trick" joke).
Both these masked maidens are by William Goebel. The voluptuous brunette is 4.5 inches high and is stamped "Germany" in black, while the lady with the lute is 4 inches tall and, in addition to the black "Germany" stamp, is incised "3739" and "B." Both retain the remains of their original wigs. Typical of Goebel, the wigs are a hank of mohair around the figure's bald pate and held in place with tiny pins. Because the wigs were not sewn to a supporting wig cap, they tend to unravel over time.
