1930s Kleur en Profiel (?) ☆ Light Blue Girl with Red Cap Counting Petals (Arnheim Collection)
21. January 2019
The motive is a girl playing the „He loves me he loves me not“ petal game. The last petal is supposed to say the truth. Maybe she even asked if the war would be over soon or not. The producer is hard to tell, it is a high quality wall figure and might have been produced by very early Mertens-Kunst or Kleur en Profiel. The date is easy to tell, the Arnheim soldier wrote „1942“ on the back for his children and family back home. Hand-painted on wood and very rare.
