RELPO K1939, 7 Inch Lady Head Vase, Circa 1960's.

She's cute. She may be my favorite thus far. If you look from the neck down (no hair) she reminds me of Barbara Bush (Grandma B not First Daughter B) with the blue and the pearls!
I find the finish on them interesting. Some glossy, some more matte. (I am sure there are technical terms, but I am using photography ones since I have like no knowledge here!)

You are right Pam--she does resemble the older Mrs. Bush. And you are also right about the terms matte and glossy to describe the different finishes. These are very detailed and time consuming finishes for fragile ceramic and pottery products, so items are not made this way anymore. It's one of the reasons I love vintage items so much. The attention to detail and artistry is absent from our modern plastic, mass produced products.

I like how you worded that. People don't word things like that now a days either! One more reason you rock. I have such cool blogging friends ;)

There you go again, telling me I rock. Thanks Pam :-)

Hi Kris,
I thought I had sent a comment? Guess it did not go through?
Anyway, she is lovely!
Talk soon.

Gina--yes, she is an eye catcher. Everyone that sees her thinks so.

Cathy--you are so fortunate to have her since so few of this 7 inch version were made. I have seen her in black but she pales in comparison to the bright blue.
