Dressel Kister Porcelain Half Doll Teepuppen Passau Bavaria West Germany






































** PHOTOS CONSTITUTE PART OF THE ITEM DESCRIPTION – PLEASE CLICK ON THEM TO ENLARGE TO FULL SCREEN VIEW. ** 

Lovely Dressel, Kister & Co. Passau, Bavaria, West Germany Porcelain Teepuppen half doll with a floral basket atop her head.  The half doll is 7” tall, and hallmarked on the front left waist. 

It is not perfect, and has numerous chips and losses to the flowers as well as to the tips of the bird’s wings.  There are three rough spots on the arms, all shown in the photos.  It is uncertain whether they are production-era glaze flaws, or some kind of damage.   

On a positive note, these losses do not detract terribly from the overall beauty of the figure – the face and hands are free of damage, and quite beautifully done.

The hallmark on this piece dates it circa 1907-1922. The design seems to be heavily influenced by Fillipo Cifariello, formerly of Capodimonte*.

We have provided numerous photos for close inspection of the damage.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO ENLARGE THEM TO FULL SCREEN VIEW!! Due to the damage of this piece it is being sold AS IS with NO RETURNS ACCEPTED.

BACKGROUND/HISTORY:

Johann Friedrich Andreas Kister is said to have purchased the factory in Passau/Bavaria for his daughter Therese, whose husband Jacob Stark, a business partner to her father, passed away the following year. Therese remarried in 1856 to Wilhelm Lenck, son a porcelain painter from Thuringia, who was an expert in the manufacture of porcelain.


The Passau factory became a family-owned enterprise under the leadership of Wilhelm Lenck. He succeeded in helping the factory to obtain world fame. Dressel & Kister Cie. exported their porcelain all over the world with France and Italy as the largest buyers in the early years. When his son Rudolf took over the firm already employed 300 workers. In the following years it became the largest commercial enterprise in that city and the Lenck family was one of the wealthiest families in Passau. Porcelain from the Lenck factory was shipped all over the world and awarded with numerous prizes. *The factory committed a designer from Italy, Fillipo Cifariello. He came from Capodimonte/Naples and received a princely salary. Considered a great artist, he created lively and elegant figurines.
