A lovely Victorian-style figurine, circa 1900, portrays handsome French lad of the period. Dressed in French Victorian attire of knee-length pants, loose fitting shirt with scarf tie and large brimmed hat with plum. The vivid burnt-orange, yellow, tan and lavender hues with gold beading on hat and pants along with gold shoes create a striking image. The lad has wonderfully detailed facial features and long, curly blond hair. The figure stands on a base of teal colored foliage.
The figurine measures 11 1/4"" in height. Incised mark of "10895"; probably Germany origin. There are no cracks or repairs; the very tip of one of his fingers is missing on his left hand. Difficult to detect; prices according. Very decorative piece.
