Bacchante, Bacchus, Bayel, Naked Lady, Naked Woman, Nude Lady, Nude Woman
I have acquired quite a few pieces over the last month, but have been slow to get them posted. Hard when the weather is nice – I’d rather be in the garden! However the snow today is rather discouraging……..so on to the new posts……..I found this figure of Bacchante recently. The shape is quite unusual – at least to me. A large water goblet, or more likely a brandy or scotch glass. This figure has both arms raised and no grapes hiding the salicious bits.
I think this is to the Bacchante figure, but if someone else knows differently I’d be happy to be corrected.

This is a fun stem from the French company Bayel. The male figure is named Bacchus and the female stem (I don’t have any, yet) is called Bacchante.
The stem is frosted, with a clear bowl. The figure is nude with grape wreath wrapped around it.
There are a number of different pieces, but I think I will be happy with just this one. I have another one coming in the mail – just to have a happy matched pair!
