This figurine shows Fanny Elssler (1810-1844) dancing the Cachucha which she danced as Florinda in Jean Coralli’s ballet Le Diable Boîteux in 1836 at the Paris Opera and in London later the same year. It became the role most closely associated with Elssler and an iconic image of the Romantic Ballet.
