Hello,

Thank you for the additional images and for your patience.

Your blanc-de-chine (all white) porcelain figural featuring 3 women dancing is entitled Festreigen and was designed by Karl Himmelstoss (1878-1967) in 1913 and then produced by the Rosenthal factory in 1916. It is a rendition of the Three Graces.

On today's auction market, this could sell for $500 - $800.
