This porcelain figurine was produced in Germany by Nymphenburg
in 1913. It has the first quality impressed shield colored blue and printed mark on the bottom. Niki is incised on the front of the base. This piece is pictured on the cover of “Nymphenburger Moderne” by Alfred Ziffer. It measures 12 1/2 inches tall, 9 inches long and 7 inches deep. Niki is well modeled by his master Willy Zugel. Hand painted details are under glaze. Zugel captured the character of NiKi in a delightful way, one ear in the air and one flopping down. He has an inquisitive look on his face, but his body is tense and he is ready to go. His collar has a little blue ribbon. You can’t make a fox terrier sit for very long.
CONDITION: There is a small 1/8”, shallow flake at the bottom edge of the base in the back that is barely visible. A corner of the folded ear has some frit and an extra bit of porcelain making it rough. This occurred in the firing process.
