This charming porcelain figurine shows a boy playing "piggy-back" with a younger child - maybe his little sister. The porcelain and painting are excellent quality and there are no chips or any damage. The faces are skillfully drawn allowing the children's character to show and with detailed attention to eyes and other features. There is evidence of gold highlights that are somewhat worn as is typical of its age. The figurine measures 4.5 inches in length and 4.25 in height. The only mark is an illegible letter on the bottom of one of the boy's feet, but the quality and style identify it clearly as German from around 1900. It would make a lovely addition to a figurine collection or collection of German character children.
