The artist was taking a big risk when he created this design of a man standing on one foot with his leg extended into space outside the base. He was bringing porcelain to the limits of stability. In the process, of course, he has given us this stunning and dramatic figure. In traditional peasant garb, the fellow dances to some tune we can only guess at, but he certainly seems to be having a great time. This well-proportioned dancer stands just under five inches tall and is marked with the early Vienna shield. The upraised arm is repainted, but otherwise it is in excellent condition. Provenance: The Antique Porcelain Company.
