This is a German Ernst Bohne Sons hard paste porcelain group of five little girl figurines skipping around a wishing well. The date is circa 1878 to 1920.

The figurine group is 7" high and 5 ¾" wide. It is a decorative piece that can also function to hold a small live plant or candy or nuts.

Five little girls, barefoot, and in dress smocks of blue and white are holding hands and skipping around a wishing well. Around their feet are applied porcelain flowers in blue and gold. Circling the base is a band of cobalt glaze with gold trim. The sides of the well have a ridged design with blue coloring in the glaze. The inside of the well and the underside of the group is also glazed.

The company also made the little girl figurines as solo pieces. The group complements the solo collection.

I can't find any chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. However the nature of a piece with applied flowers, the flowers invariably get nicked and chipped with handling over the years. I don't see any damage at all, but I am holding out the possibility that I missed a nick here or there.

There is a hole drilled into the bottom of each girl's dress and another hole drilled into the bottom of the group. This was done by the maker to ensure stability of the porcelain. There is some red color in the glaze under a few arms of the figurines and I show a close-up photo; you have to hold the group upside down to see it.

The maker's mark on the underside is the blue anchor for Ernst Bohne Sons.
