Beautiful JIE ceramic figurine of a girl designed by Elsi Bourelius. This sculpture is known as "Girl with Flower" because the piece is made with an opening which can be used to place a flower. Another lovely detail about this piece is the way the girl two feet support the figurine giving it a subtle inclination.
This lovely figurine is in very good vintage condition. No chips, no cracks and no repairs.
