"The Swimmer" - Artist Gustav Adolf Daumiller

Got myself another one of these beauties :thumbsup:

Beautiful bisque finish porcelain, the lady stands at 390mm in height - totally undamaged and manufactured by Rosenthal.

Figure has a beautiful wax like finish. Stamped “Rosenthal – Germany – Kunstabteilung – Selb” on the bottom. Gustav Adolf Daumiller (born November 10, 1876 in Memmingen Died 16 January 1962 in Munich), a much favoured German artist during the Third Reich period. He studied at the Design Academy in Hanau and then from 1900 the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.  In the 1930s he created sculptures, which were produced by the porcelain company Rosenthal. He was a member of the Munich Artists’ Association and exhibited 1 piece at the Great German Art Exhibition 1937-44 at the Haus der Kunst Munich.

Thanks for looking :thumbsup:
