Large over 16" tall Parian Figure of a Young Woman Drinking from a Shell ca late 1800's,rn with water coming out. She possibly is sitting on a wells ledge. In her cupped hand she holds a shell which she appears to be drinking from. The piece is very well done. Her gown appears to have fallen and is exposing one bare breast. Her gown comes down around her body and gives the impression of it blowing in the wind behind her. Foliage is around the rock her feet. This piece is very similar and on the same style as the creations by John Bell. She has a chipped toe but otherwise is in very good condition; please see pictures.

Parian refers to fine-grained porcelain, usually unglazed, that imitates marble. It became popular from the mid 19th century, especially for making figures and busts. Backstamp: impressed B
