Two 1890s Heubach Baseball Figurines
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,624.00
These two brightly painted porcelain statues were produced in the 1890s in Heubach, Germany, as indicated by the stamp on the bottom of each. The figurines depict both a pitcher and batter in similar style period uniforms. The pitcher, dressed in blue, holds a ball in front of his chest. The batter, dressed in pink, stands at the plate with bat in hand. These delicate statues were offered in several sizes, with each larger size being progressively more expensive. Originally sold in pairs as decorative accents to provide beauty to well-furnished Victorian homes, they still accomplish their intended purpose today. Because of their fragile nature, these statues break easily. Many did not survive, and those that did are often chipped or cracked and repaired. This pair is in outstanding Near Mint condition. Each figure measures 7.5 inches in height. Total 2 statues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,624.00
