Here is an absolutely enthralling antique Sevres biscuit figurine in soft paste unglazed porcelain of a young woman with grapes, known as the “Little Girl with an Apron.” She was modeled by Pierre Blondeau in 1752, after a design by Boucher, and she wears a headscarf, holding bunches of grapes and fruit in her apron and standing barefoot beside a tree stump on a grassy rockwork base. She stands about eight and a half inches high, and there are some porcelain flaws in hidden places under the apron and in tight corners, as well as a couple on the surface at the back. The only damage is a little loss to some of the grapes, the knuckle of the little finger on her right hand is chipped, and there is also a tiny chip to the edge of her jacket in the back. She is in excellent shape for being born in the 18th century! There are no factory marks, which is common for Sevres figures, but the bottom was incised with an arrow sometime after it was fired.
