These are excellent examples of the always interesting and very three-dimensional figures made at the royal factory in Frankenthal. Because of their stance, they were probably meant to be seen from below, displayed on a tall library bookcase or a high shelf. One nymph leans against a Roman column; the second displays her cornucopia overflowing with the bounty of the fields. They are both seven and a half inches tall. The figure with the cornucopia has a chip to her hair and to one corner of the base. The other has been reglued through the ankles. In the reference book Ludwigsburger Porzellan one figure is referenced as number 478 libertas li arm gest. (Allegory of Freedom).
