Antique mid-19th c. German hard paste porcelain figural group of 2 women and a small dog (looks like a King Charles spaniel). It is an absolutely charming scene right out of 18th c. Europe. One young lady is seated on a throne like red chair, while the other is holding the stem of a broken flower in her gloved hand and even has a bracelet on her other hand. The ladies have the most adorable faces. The seated girl has her foot on a pillow. The figure measures The workmanship is incredible. Look at the folds in their clothing. The exquisitely painted detail of the dresses. You can almost feel the fabric. This is truly one of the finest pieces of porcelain I have ever seen. There is some damage, though. As I mentioned, the flower in the girl's hand has broken off, so she holds only a stem. There's also a small chip in one of the flowers in the seated girl's hair. And the seated girl has at one time broken clear across her waist and has been restored. Only noticeable if you know it's there, otherwise, not readily visible. The base is marked with stamped/impressed "CF" mark (which was used from 1846 to 1857). Statue measures approx. 5 1/2" high X 3 1/2" wide.
