This is late 19th century (1890's) Uriela Egyptian composition sculpture statue that originated from Cologne Germany. She stands 39.5" tall and is marked "Uriela Modeled In Cologne" with a signed artist's name of "J. Koenig" and "1252 a" on her base; she weighs 39 pounds. She has ancient Egyptian symbols and plants on various parts of her garment, pot and base, and her colors are very vivid.
The origin of Uriela statues is somewhat unknown, mainly speculated upon. I have discovered two other Uriela statues in museums. One is in the Smithsonian, and the other is in a museum in Dawson City, Yukon Canada. According to the Dawson City museum, similar statues reside in Montana, Texas, and Wisconsin. Also according to the Dawson City museum, these statues were sold in the Egyptian pavilion, aptly named A Street in Cairo, at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago. The World's Fair, also named the Colombian Exposition, was the biggest of its time. Some restoration. **Local pick up only......... Call or text .
