This fabulous figurine is very rare in both subject matter and make: it was made by Karl Ens - a quality manufacturer of dresden style porcelain. I haven't seen another Karl Ens piece with dresden style lace in this size. A woman is standing next to a Jester who has his arms graciously stretched out. The piece is very nicely done and is quite large and heavy. It stands slightly over 11" tall! There are no broken fingers; however, there are some dark patches on the white lace which must indicate some type of repair. I have no idea how they did it because the lace really blends in. There is also some discoloration on the jester's collar. That is the only flaw with the piece and it can probably be touched up with white by a professional restorer. It is absolutely stunning and enhances any Meissen or dresden collection. It is also a remarkable value due to the patches on the lace. If perfect, I think the piece could sell for close to $2,000.
