GIRL WITH A BUTTERFLY BY HERTWIG - HALF DOLL & FIGURINE



These cute figurines were made by Hertwig of Katzhuette/Thuringia. The girl is glancing at a butterfly sitting on her hand. She was made as a full figurine and a half doll. Both figurines are made in excellent quality and with a lifelike expression (side-glancing blue eyes and chubby cheeks).  The half doll measures 11 cm (4-1/3”) in height. The full figurine is marked with the green Hertwig “cat in a house” mark, the half doll is unmarked.
