This unglazed white porcelain figural centerpiece was made in the second half of the 18th century in France. It presents a group of young musicians playing their instruments, which include flute, hurdy-gurdy, violin, clarinet and, strangely, something that looks like bagpipes. With professional restorations to some of the details, the group displays almost perfectly, from the tiny hand-formed bows on the musicians’ shoes to the bow of the lady’s violin. Each costume and even the expressions on the faces are minutely detailed. It stands an impressive eleven and a half inches high.
