    This German Pewter Girl Ex Voto stands an impressive 7" high by 2.625" wide and weighs just over a quarter of a pound.  The ex voto is made of solid pewter with a highly polished surface that looks like silver.  She is beautifully detailed with deep-set eyes under dramatically arched eyebrows, a pug nose, sensuous unsmiling lips, and slightly curly hair with a middle part and bow.  Her right hand sits on her torso, while her left arm (palm out) rests by her side.  She is wearing an empire waist dress with a raised swirl pattern on the yoke and and an etched border at the hem.  She is barefoot.  A loop for hanging has been cast into the top of her head.  Marked on her slightly concave back are the words: "zinn gpm" and "gsm gesch."  (Zinn identifies this piece as pewter.  Gsm Gesch, which is an abbreviation for Gesetzlich Geschutzt, means legally protected and refers to copyright.)  Maker and exact age are unknown.  This German Pewter Girl Ex Voto is in Like New condition.
