Here are two examples from a larger decorative set of people engaged in ordinary occupations around the city. One is a woman street-seller, purveying fruit from her basket to passers-by. In the reference book Ludwigsburger Porzellan this figure is number 415, described as Obstfrau li auf korb (Fruit-woman holding basket). Her arm has been reattached at the elbow. The other is number 439, described as Strassenkehrerin besen (Street sweeper with broom). Sections of her long braid in the back have been repaired and a section of the base with part of her foot has been well restored (shown in one of the photos). Both are about six inches tall, in good shape for antiques of this age and delicacy.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
