About

Dancer in an oriental costume with traditional Korean headgear, with raised, bent legs and arms performing a dance pose, a Chinese pagoda leaning against her leg. The figure is richly painted in bright colors and gold and is based on a white, stepped oval base with a gold rim. A photo by Alexander Binder, which depicts the dancer in a Korean dance in a corresponding pose, served as a template for this design. Anita Berber (1899 - 1928) was a German dancer and actress. She studied acting and dance and soon became a star on Berlin's stages. Designed by Constantin Holzer-Defanti (1881 - 1951) Austrian sculptor and porcelain maker; lived in Selb from 1918 to 1927, where he worked for the Rosenthal and Hutschenreuth factories and, for a short time, for the Fraureuth porcelain factory.
