Standing Woman, perhaps Night


Factory: Worcester Royal Porcelain Company




Parian (?) porcelain figure of a Standing Woman, perhaps Night, slip-cast, glazed and painted in flesh pink, red, and brown enamels.

Parian (?) porcelain figure of a Standing Woman, perhaps Night, slip-cast, glazed and painted in flesh pink, red, and brown enamels. The circular straight-sided base has an unglazed flange and a glazed underside with a central ventilation hole. The woman, perhaps Night, stands with her leg relaxed and her feet slightly apart. Her head is tilted to her right and downwards. Her right arm is across her body and she holds her left upper arm with her right hand. Her left arm is across her body lower down, and she holds her drapery in her left hand. She wears her brown hair in a Grecian style, and has pink cheeks and red lips. She has a veil round her face and shoulders, apparently under her hair, and a long, layered and pleated tunic which is off the right shoulder, and held on her right upper arm by a brooch.
