Mid Nineteenth Century porcelain figural group emblematic of love and family.
The polychrome figures of a man, woman and child wearing 18th century dress entirely hand painted in polychrome colors, each supporting flower encrusted garlands while posing in a garden around a Grecian urn on a fluted marble column. The reverse with two doves, their beaks touching as if to kiss.
Measures approximately 7.2” tall x 6.6” diameter (widest). Good condition with minor losses to flower petals. The figure of the dove with out-streatched wings has been restored. (old restoration) Price reflects faults.
Carries underglaze blue Meissen crossed swords with a dot and incised number 46. If you are a collector of this type of porcelain you already know that Jacob Petit (1796-1868) copied models of both Meissen and Sevres. He used a crossed swords mark between the years 1830 and 1863. Ref: Meissen by Robert E. Rontgen.
