Depicted are two Balinese female dancers in traditional costume, typical of the dancers who depict Hindu epics in the dance. We believe these pieces date from the pre-war period, circa 1922-1942.
Carl Werner was one of the most important German porcelain modellers of the 20th century. He started as a sculptor for Hutschenreuthr AG in 1922, and by 1960 he became head of the art department. One of his most famous pieces is the Balinese Dancer (Sword Dancer or in German, Schwerttanzer), which we're selling in a separate auction. The Hutschenreuther ( Hutschenreuthr ) firm was aquired by Rosenthal in 2000.
