This sweet and pensive little hand painted Pierrot figurine holds his lute at his side as he leans on the ruins of an old wall. He is dressed all in white with a big ruff collar, brick red buttons and shoes and a glossy black hat which covers his hair except for a few stray locks. His hair and features are delicately painted, with a sweet little mouth and piercing black eyes; his lute and the base of the wall are opalescent yellow. All paint is under the glaze. We think this is a bud vase, but it may have been made for hat pins.
This piece measures 3 5/8" tall x 2" wide. Incised Germany and 15391 at base on the back. There are some illegible marks and light scuffing on the unglazed underside. Overall conditions is excellent. We believe this figurine dates from the 1890s - 1910s.
