Rarely found and well modeled 9” ( 23cm ) tall Gebruder Heubach ( two marks under base – a blue “ GH Fan “ mark and a red “ made in Germany Stamp” ) all bisque figure of a boy looking slightly downward to the left at his pug dog in a semi-reclined position standing under the child’s right foot. The long night shirt has an open collar with edge trimmed in pink and gold luster edging at all extremities and touches the floor but revealing the boy’s left bare foot protruding forward. All modeling is done in great realistic detail from the boy’s hair to facial expression to the dog’s face to the exposed toes and on and on and on!. To further emphasize the planned thought and detail the boy’s right hand is modeled specifically to be able to grasp an actual fine metal chain to extend as the collar around his pet’ s neck. The essence of the figure is reminiscent perhaps of Wendy’s Brother John from the night Peter Pan came to whisk the children away to Neverland (!?) …US$ 495.

Rarely found all bisque figure of exceptional quality and detail with great subject matter to more than one field of collectors is this 8 ½” ( 21cm,  including base ) model of an elaborately dressed black girl with well detailed bonnet, multicolored dress and boots , trimmed in gold luster with left arm extended and carrying a doll in her right bent arm. The child has a deep smile, brown painted intaglio eyes and protruding in both in front and at the back of the neck molded curls of hair. Although of “ Heubach quality “ in detail and of the nature of the base there are no markings found and the actual weight of the figure is much greater than that of a Heubach figure of this size so perhaps made by Carl Schneider or Conta & Boehm or similar well respected German maker of bisque/porcelain. A truly wonderful piece and not to be overlooked regardless of whomever the source of manufacture might be!………US$ 395.

 Charming and well -constructed all wooden milk wagon and horse with all original paint and in good working order , 21’ ( 53 cm ) long, and 9” ( 23 cm ) tall to top of wagon, and as well as a toy, also advertised the Sheffield Farms Milk Company in New York City, who was a major supplier of milk there in latter part of 19th Century and the first half of the 20th. According to Wikipedia that after the early 1960’s the property formerly housing the Sheffield Farms Company on West 57th Street in New York now is the current location of the CBS Broadcasting facilities there. In addition to just being a toy wagon, it is also a pull toy and when the cord is pulled from the front the horse’s feet move back and front as if walking. Also perhaps a bit unusual is that the horse’s hooves do not actually touch the surface as he is propelled forward. Something a bit different and a great prop for making a display!…….US$ 575.

12 ½” ( 31cm ) tall ( including base ) all bisque marked ( with a red “ fan” logo underneath base ) Gebruder Heubach ballerina with blond upswept coiffure, long swan-like slightly turned neck and molded necklace, wearing a narrow waist gold leaf trimmed tutu with lavender shaded highlights, typical ballerina slippers, long “ textured “ stockings, and holding a candy-striped-type cane or baton between her hands. She stands on the typical Heubach multi-colored base with simulated textured stone wall back. Although one finds quite frequently the dancing lady with the fan in many sizes and color variations this particular figure is rarely observed at all much less in this larger size and with no apparent obvious damage and/or repairs. As is typical on these larger and complicated molds there is a slight firing separation on the back wall behind the dancer’s right thigh but is not a damage and only a common occurrence in the manufacture of these exquisitely executed figurine …US$ 375.

Extremely rare and realistically executed 6” ( 15cm ) tall Gebruder Heubach ( with blue “ fan” mark logo under base ) all bisque figure portraying a young African-American ( or any young black girl from any region in the world ) all dressed up with her “ hair up “ and wearing an elaborate ball gown in dark teal color with pink painted flowers, huge white ruffled high collar and trimmed sleeves, all while smiling and raising her skirt up in front and wearing lavender gloves to reveal ( although otherwise extremely well attired ) bare feet underneath. Perhaps at the “end of the night “  and wanting to finally “ kick off her shoes “ for the final dance. ….US$ 325.

8” ( 20cm ) tall ( seated ) Gebruder Heubach “Sunbonnet Baby “ with aqua and white based costume and shoes motif with girl looking somewhat down and to the right with smiling expression, arms crossed at wrist level for index finger of the right hand extended. On the base are multiple G Heubach markings including a blue stamp” fan “ logo, a red “ Made in Germany “ stamp an incised “ fan “ mark, and several lightly impressed numbers that are difficult to discern with certainty. As is usual with Heubach figures , the modeling is crisp and overall superb especially regarding the wide brim of the bonnet. Although not THE largest possible model of this ever-popular figure it is nevertheless much bigger than typically found with no repairs or damages observed……………..US$ 295.
