After Canova, Cupid reviving Psyche with a kiss, on an oval base
Parian is a type porcelain body without a glaze developed at the Copeland factory around 1850 to imitate statuary porcelain.
It immediately became a success and so other factories began to produce wares in the same body.
This group is copying Canova's marble group of Cupid and Psyche commissioned in 1787 and currently in the Louvre, Paris. This piece was obviously presented to some person in September 1911.
Parian pieces are highly collectible.
