Help Wanted: Vintage Chalk Nude Figures

Steve from New Zealand emailed me about a stunning vintage piece he found after seeing my post about a very similar piece I found and blogged about in 2007:

Hi there I found the pic of your nude lady as I have just bought one similar, she is a different design, made from plaster, and is in a sitting position , she has the loin cloth the same as yours, so its original.

She is 350 mm high in total, some minor chips and no broken bits , it was interesting to see your one, as I was unsure about the loin cloth, about it being original.

She was in a box lot of stuff at an auction a couple of nights ago that I went to , I am not a collector of erotica , but just had to have her

I searched for hours last night to find any more other than the pics and info of yours , but to no avail .

The thing that I am impressed with is the accuracy of her dimensions , she is extremly lifelike compared to other figurines I have seen .

The other thing is , she has a number 7 impressed on the back of the base , does yours have a number , if so it will mean there was a series .

Mine has no numbers or any markings at all; however, I do suspect this was a series. Since these are plaster or chalkware pieces, I suspect they are from the 1940s or 1950s. Perhaps someone with more info and/or more pieces can shed some light on them!

    Wow, what beautiful figurines, both Steve’s and yours, SPS, as shown in the 2007 link. I would have had a hard time resisting them myself, no pun intended!
