Here is a charming and very rare 18th-century German porcelain figure of a couple of children portrayed as shepherds, allegorical of Marriage. (Symbolically, the winsome girl is offering to “cage” the young man if he’s willing.) Do you want to send a message to a sweet Someone? This may be the figure to make your point. Think about it. The highest point of the figure is four and three-quarters inches. As always with antique figures, there is a little damage. The door of the cage has been well-repaired, and his left arm has been repaired from the elbow to his hand. The strap on his pouch in the back is chipped and there are some tiny nibbles to the brim of the hats. This figurine is dated 1771 on the bottom, along with the Frankenthal mark. I have listed another white Frankenthal figure group dated 1771 that would make a good companion for this group, and I also show a photo of the groups together.


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.
