Royal Dux Bohemia Ice Figure Skating Skater Figurine

ITEM DESCRIPTION

Up for auction is a lovely Royal Dux Bohemia Ice Skating Figure Skater figurine. She stands just shy of 7 inches in height, and stands on a base that is roughly 1-3/4 inches in diameter. She is wearing a royal blue dress, a light blue hat/headpiece, and has on white skates with silver blades. She has reddish brown hair and a beautiful face. The original triangular Royal Dux Bohemia sticker is still on the base (as can be seen in the photos). She is marked on the bottom with the Royal Dux mark that my research indicates was used between 1912-1942, and apparently says "ROYAL DUX MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA" although this is too small for me to actually read! ;-) I took a photo of the mark, so you can see it in the pictures provided in the auction listing. The mark is dark blue in color.

I can find no obvious signs of repairs, and no damage (no chips, cracks, crazing, etc.). T is some sticker residue on the bottom which you can see in the photos. T is also a small spot on the underside of her skirt which feels and looks kind of matte, rather than shiny like the rest of her, but this appears to be a slight manufacturing flaw rather than actual damage. She is absolutely lovely.
