This boxing belle may be related to the sultry sultana featured earlier on this blog. Of high quality plaster, she shares the same slender modeling, unusual angular face with narrow eyes, and round reddish-brown base. Wearing her original mohair wig, this pulchritudinous pugilist is 10.5 inches tall and, unfortunately, unmarked. I wonder if she was originally costumed, and if so, how. The modeling of her arms against her abdomen would have made dressing difficult, and her stylish high heels would appear out of place in the boxing ring.
However, in the 1927 silent film, "Rough House Rosie," star Clara Bow appeared in boxing garb, complete with pumps. Known as the "It Girl," Bow, with her head full of henna curls and vivacious, carefree persona, personified the young women of the flapper era. The movie was meant as a vehicle for Bow, one of the period's most popular actresses, so it is quite possible that some manufacturer created a pretty plaster prizefighter "inspired" by Bow in her brief boxing attire. Unfortunately, the film has been lost, with only the trailer and some still photographs remaining.
A close up of her face shows the meticulous modeling, including parted lips exposing a row of tiny teeth.
