Another fine piece of Italian ceramic art brought to you by All That Glitters in Beautiful Bridgeport, Connecticut, an incredibly detailed hand painted vintage ballerina figurine made in Italy for Gump's Department Store in 'Frisco. In case you are not familiar with Gump's it is a very prestigious high-end department store where, we were told, Ms. Barbara Streisand enjoys shopping when she's not lurking in the aisles at Bloomingdale's or Saks Fifth Avenue. We are sure this item was over $200 new. This colorful figurine is 4" tall and her pointed toe shoes are spread out to 9". Inside her costume skirt is marked "made in Italy for Gump's." She is posited in a sitting position, feet pointed outward at ten o'clock and two o'clock, arms raised in an inquisitive gesture, a look of noncommittal wonderment on her mime-like visage. Excellent condition, no chips, no cracks. We do not have the box.
This is a fine example of Old World artisanship.
