What a charming and exquisitely painted female nude on porcelain...and a companion putto at her feet!
This gorgeous piece was produced circa 1900 and is a rare display piece.
Please note the beautifully painted portrait quality painting. We are impressed by the carefully applied hands and how well the three dimensional extremities blend into the two dimensional painting of such a beautiful female form.
It comes from the Richard Eckert & Co Porcelain Factory, Volkstedt, Thuringia, Germany. The mark dates it between 1897-1918.
This was the same era of the popular Meissen & Dresden pieces and would display quite nicely with Thieme items.
We see a great number of Dresden and Meissen pieces with small attached adornments and it is not uncommon to have missing petals or fingers....amazingly on this piece, all fingers and toes are intact and show no signs of repairs either! There is one tiny tiny chip (occurred in the making because it was glazed over) on the front by the reclining putto. The rarity and quality of this rare piece more than make up for the almost unnoticeable ding.
