Buenos Aires – Argentina. 1915 Rare Bisque Galluba &Hofmann 424-F Bathing Beauty w/Red Devil Figurine/Doll. Description: Adorable and extremely rare all bisque bathing beauty figure of a nude adult lady posed lying semi-sideways with her knees bent, head inclined as though gazing upward, arms extended upward and outward and a small red devil figurine seated on her right thigh. This is one of the scarcer poses produced by the German company of Galluba and Hofmann and her sitting devil makes her even far rarer than their other sisters. Delicate and very well detailed barefooted figurine. Beautifully modeled from her shapely arms and legs to her supple soft curves. Made of fired in precolored bisque with painted features. Her lovely face is decorated in typical Galluba style, with one stroke brows, sultry intaglio gray eyes outlined in black, large black pupils, red lid lines, full softly smiling coral lips and dimpled chin. Still retains her original brown mohair wig and she is dressed in her. Net tulle swimming suit and matching cap. There is not doubt the most outstanding and intriguing feature of this beauty is the unusual figurine of the red devil. Incised 424 F on her left thigh. Made in Germany, circa 1915 by Galluba & Hoffman, considered by collectors to be one of the finest makers of bathing bathing beauties and its lovely ladies are scarce and highly sought after. 8 inches (20.5 cm) lon. All complete with original wig and swimsuit. Index finger of right hand and thumb of left one have been redone in the past. Red paint of Devil looks hand painted and somewhat uneven and flaked. Thumb and index finger of Devil have been res. There are some tiny holes to the swim suit and cap. Otherwise, excellent overall condition.
