This is a hard paste porcelain figurine, used as a holy water font, though it can be used as a candy dish or to hold anything as it isn't in the typical shape for a holy water font. The region is Andenne in Belgium. The maker is Jules Dothee-Jamar who was the successor to Camille Renard. The date is the 19th century, circa 1863 to 1864.

I am told the girl on the sheep is Saint Jean as a young girl. She is dressed in a light blue frock, speckled with white, and holding aloft over her head the font, all while she is riding on a sheep. Around the base are porcelain flowers.

The figure is 8 ¾" high and the base is 4 ½" by 4 ½".

Applied flowers on pieces this old get damaged, and it is visible where petals are broken in the two close-up photos I show of the flowers.

On the underside there is an old short crack on the foot rest that goes up the outside a bit; I point to the area with red arrows in the third and last photos. There are no other chips, nicks or cracks, just some modest wear to the gold trim on the font. Overall the piece is in good condition for being this old.

The underside has the impressed mark of JD plus an incised number 7,
