This is a German porcelain Dresden lace figurine of a courting couple, made in the 1930 time period by Ernst Bohne and Sons of Rudolstadt, Germany. This figurine has a current value of $125 to $150.00 retail.


To create the illusion of real fabric on figurines of women dancing at royal balls or posing in groups, decorators would dip actual, delicate lace into porcelain slip before applying it by hand to the porcelain figure. When fired in a kiln, the fabric would burn away, leaving a hard but extremely fragile shell of frozen crinoline skirts and billowy material behind.
