As the Victorian era passed into the Edwardian and Roaring Twenties, a market developed for bisque and china naughty novelties and figurines of women in revealing outfits. These little lovelies include bathing beauties, who came clad in swimsuits of real lace or stylish painted beach wear, as well as mermaids, harem ladies, and nudies, who wear only an engaging smile. Also produced were flippers (innocent appearing figurines who reveal a bawdy secret when flipped over) and water squirters. Most were manufactured in Germany from the late 1800s through the 1930s, often showing remarkable artistry and imagination. This photographic study showcases an extraordinary variety of figurines, and the in-depth text will help collectors and dealers discover the rich history behind them. Manufacturing techniques, marks, and manufacturers are discussed, including Galluba and Hoffman, William Goebel, Hertwig and Company, Schafer and Vater, and more. Decorative details, size, and current value are provided for each figurine. A delightful reference for bathing beauty and doll collectors, Art Deco aficionados, and all who enjoy things naughty and mischievous.
