These lovely Porcelain Figurines of a Colonial Couple are delicately modelled and full of charm. They are 6 1/2" tall on a 2 1/4" diameter rococo base. The coloring of the figures is so detailed and well done. The outfits and faces are beautiful. Each is holding a wood staff. Both have well done repairs on their hats. I find no other condition problems. They are marked with Blue Crossed Forks. The Figurines are from the Thuringia principality now Germany. From the town of Volkstedt. The old V mark of one or two pitchforks was originally designed to imitate Meissen, but by the late nineteenth century this was an established sign used by several makers in Volkstedt. The firm of Richard Eckert and Co. made a large number of delicate figurines between 1894 to 1918. There is also a gold # 10 on the bottom and an impressed 14-30.
