The dancing girl was made by Slama and Company of Vienna, Austria and Moravia, Germany. They moved to Vienna(Wien), Austria in 1948

and used the Dresden mark as a trade name of their Dresden lace figurines. The red Slama mark dates the dancer to the 1950's and she has a value of $125 to $175.00 retail.

The two 'French' ladies date to the 1960's, were imports from Asia (Japan) that were sold at the florist and gift shop of Podesta and Baldocchi in San Francisco. The store used this sticker in the 1960's. The pair of ladies have a value of $100 for the pair.
