Traditional Delft decoration consist of Dutch country scenes of windmills, sailing ships and buildings along canals, usually portrayed on plates or other dinner-ware type items. This type of decorating was done by French, English as well as German companies.
This fabulous German porcelain figural planter/vase, circa 1900-1920, portrays a stylish mother giving her young daughter a piggyback ride with a large, woven baskets for plants or flowers on either side of her. Her gown is decorated with a Dutch scene with a canal and windmill. The shades of dark-to-medium-to-light blue are gorgeous. The facial features of the mother and daughter are breath-taking.
The central mother and daughter figure stands 10" in height, the baskets are 3" square and 4" in depth. The object measures 10" in length and 4" in width. The circular mark is "Made in Germany", impressed "2049" and signed in blue "Neth". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; one shallow flake, 3/16" x 1/8", on the interior top edge of one of the baskets (see photo). Fantastic piece of German Delft.
