Blood running down from the cut throat of a sheep may not be the kind of thing you want sitting on your shelf, but it didn’t seem to bother Ludwigsburg customers in the 18th century. This hard-hearted nymph comes from a set of several bacchantes who are illustrated in Hans Christ’s Ludwigsburger Porzellanfiguren, 1921, plate 83. In the comprehensive reference book Ludwigsburger Porzellan this figure is number 528 (Bacchante Offering a Sacrifice). Other factories made similar versions, Niderviller, for example. She is eight and a quarter inches tall. Excellent condition.


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.
