Posing provocatively on her pillow, this extraordinarily lovely lady is by my favorite maker of bathing belles and nubile nudes, A. W. Fr. Kister. She is from the company's series of languid beauties cast in creamy white bisque, carefully highlighted with subtle washes of pale golden-yellow, giving the impression of a sculpture carved in ivory or marble. She displays the superb realistic sculpting, graceful pose, and expressive features typical of Kister. Of the finest bisque, this figurine is 5.25 inches long and 3.5 inches high.
Under the cushion, the piece is incised with the cross-hatched "S" of Kister and "11281."
Here she appears in the company catalog. Note that the item number is identical to the incised numeral on the figurine.
