Great early 13" Meissen porcelain figurine that is only stamped with a "39" on base and no visible crossed swords, but is absolutely guaranteed early Meissen. He displays perfectly, but upon blacklight inspection his arm holding the wine glass has been repaired from about the elbow up. Also some of the grape leaves look to have been touched with paint and there is a small chip to the corner of the plinth. A fantastic early example of Meissen's early work, and a piece to be proud of. This was done by Eberlein and/or Kaendler.
