Weekly WhatIsIt: Ada Schwetz Lehman Doll Bust
The answer to our last somewhat weekly whatisit is that the doll bust in the picture is cast from a mold made by artist Ada Schwetz Lehman of Germany. The bust was made in the 1930's in a popular ceramic manufacturing plant. This is a relatively rare piece (though others are available). Before and during World War II, Nazi soldiers took over the ceramics factory. Many busts were destroyed during this time. Production continued at the factory, however, the nazi regime dictated that all casts be stamped with a swastika.
The doll bust that we have does not have a swastika. A link to more pictures of the doll bust can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bumblepuppysales/sets/72157633421446352/. There is not a lot more information that I can find on Ada and her work other than that she was married to an Austrian artist. If anyone else has additional information to share, we would love to hear it!
