The Fencer, made by the Porcelain Manufactory Allach. White, unglazed (bisque porcelain) porcelain figure after a design by Ottmar Obermaier. The back of the plinth signed ‘O. Obermaier’, base is stamped with the raised octagon, the SS runes are barely visible due to a lot of glaze filling in the spaces and the model number ’83’. Allach porcelain ‘Porzellan Manufaktur Allach’ was produced in Germany between 1935 and 1945. After its first year of operation, the enterprise was run by the SS with forced labor provided by the Dachau concentration camp under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler.
