Here we have a wonderful mid 1800’s Centerpiece. The French Porcelain company of Letu & Mauger (Pierre Henry Mauger & Louis Xavier Letu) started producing high quality Parian & biscuit porcelain figures in Paris in 1857 moving to new premises in Villenaux after purchasing Gentil-Jacob and continuing to produce throughout the latter part of the 19th century. This piece dates from around 1860 and a very similar piece, currently resides in the Museum of France. It is a very sweet boat with a cherub on the back and the man courting the young lady. The detail is exceptional and well executed.
