I've made many new friends via Instagram, and one particular friend has a shop called, "56Store", in Thailand. They have an amazing vintage collection of 1940s thru 1970s decor, etc. I fell in love with their rare Cortendorf type Figurines of native ladies... I remember a friend of mine via Germany told me about them first. She collected them, and I just thought I'd try to see if they were for sale?! Sure enough, they were! Yay! I was able to purchase them and they arrived to me very quickly too!
in 1890 Cortendorf today is part of the city of Coburg-Cortendorf. The
well known sculptor Albert Strunz introduced new sculpture designs such
as the wall masks that West German Cortendorf pottery is well known for.
These Figurines were produced from 1955 - 1960. In the Mid Century Cortendorf is well known for its female wall masks,
riskay nude sculptures, animal shaped tea pots and in the 60's produced
figures with a wood grain appearance. After 1973 Cortendorf factory was acquired by the Goebel Company." - by Retro Decor Also, bit of history here by Nostalgie Corner.
Upon inspection of the girls, they don't have the sticker that shows they are Cortendorf, instead they have just a sticker on them, "Japan".
56Store for the amazing transaction! You guys were awesome. They both arrived safely, well-packed and super fast! I will shopping with you again!
Then, another sweet friend, KitschandKawaii, msg me about a cutie she found via etsy! Wow, thank you Christine for the notice. I snatched her up and here she is...
Just some random photos of cotton candy I was craving for a few days ago...
