Norman Rockwell and an Oriental Girl

Royal Copley 40’s Bisque Oriental Girl Figurine FREE SHIPPING! OPEN LINK!

This young Asian girl is styled as so many were in the 40’s and 50’s... in the full robes. She is roughly hand painted.She stands 8” tall and shows a closed eye kissing pose. She does have some loss of paint on her face and head and slightly elsewhere, But she still has lots of youthful charm about her.It appears that the technique in making her was to fire her in the red/maroon glaze of the robe and then paint on the skin tone, black hair, and the lime green, trimming the robe. Surely mass produced, this is s time piece of post art nouveau modernism. Many lamps, TV lights and other items were made depicting this style. The bottom mark is a circled “c”, which I have seen on other Royal Copley figurines.
