STAR BOY Candle Holder

by Swedish Artist,LISA LARSON, for GOEBEL

This delightful little figure was purchased in Europe in the early 1990s. The predominently white figure with a yellow star on the cap stands on an olive green base and is 7" tall. It is in mint condition with no cracks, chips or crazing. I no longer have its original box.

I can't find a description of it anywhere but Replacements, Inc., told me it was done by Swedish artist, Lisa Larson, for Goebel. I'm not even sure it is called "Star Boy" but again that is a name that seems to fit. There is a Goebel stamp on the bottom (could not get an in-focus picture of the stamp with my camera).

If I learn anything else about this piece I will update this description.

In contacting the Lisa Larson website to inquire about this candlestick, I received this reply today: "Lisa designed a series of around 10 different candle holders for Goebel, in Germany, in the late 1980’s. She doesn’t think very many were produced (which means it is a rare product!). Kind regards Johanna Larson" This could mean a good buy for someone!!
