Beautiful Dahl Jensen Polynesian Woman
This porcelain figurine was produced in Denmark by Dahl Jensen before 1970. A model number, 1136, is on the bottom. The piece is 8 1/4 inches high and has a 6 inch width. Dahl Jensen is known for their exceptionally high quality porcelain. Their modelers display their artistic talents and creativity with the subjects they portray. Each piece exhibits a liveliness derived from the expert hand painting by Dahl Jensen artisans that is unlike other Danish porcelain manufactures. This young peasant woman is in native dress. Much attention has been given to the details of her costume. The pattern on her skirt can actually be felt with your fingers like a tapestry. There is grace and peacefulness in her depiction. The Dahl Jensen factory closed in the 1981 with a relatively brief production period beginning in 1925. These desirable porcelain figurines are scarce and sought after. This is a first quality figurine in excellent condition.
