This is a very pretty vintage Italian porcelain figurine.

She is beautifully modelled - but she does not have much in the way of markings to identify her - except that she is made in Italy - as annotate on the base.

On stylistic grounds, she looks like similar figures made in the 1940s and 1950s at Capodimonte. She might be a San Marco figure or one modelled by Guido Cacciapuoti. She is certainly a very attractive and competent figurine.

She wears a peasant style dress with green bodice, pink skirt and yellow underskirt - all decorated with hand painted tiny flowers. She has been out in the garden and has been picking flowers which she has popped in a basket carried on her arm. She wears a finely woven straw hat - this is not made of ceramic - but is a real miniature straw one - this is original to the figure - and a very rare survivor.

I love her face - and her features remind me a little of the movie star, Marlene Dietrich. She has pronounced painted eyebrows, big eyelashes and a bright red rosebud mouth.

She is a really attractive model - and is in excellent condition with no losses or damages.

She is 9 inches in height - and the width of her dress at the widest part is about 7 1/4 inches.

Unpacked she is 860 grams in weight.
