Porcelain Figurine, Small Boy in Waistcoat Gathering Grapes, 19th Century

Beautifully modeled figurine on a square base of a angelic-faced, small boy dressed in waistcoat and trousers decorated in tiny flowers and circles. On his pretty head is a little black hat with a gold painted flower. He appears to be gathering clusters of grapes in his coat, and is leaning against a gnarled tree trunk. There is an old repair on one side of his hat though it is not very noticable. There is also a small chip on one of the folds of his waistcoat on the back of the figurine. You can see this small flaw if you look closely at picture no.3. These are really minor flaws in an otherwise fine old porcelain figurine. Also one little corner of the base is missing some gold paint. The figurine is 4.5" high and is marked on the base in underglaze blue. These appear to be crossed swords though I leave that determination to the viewer since the markings are fairly faint.
