Measuring approximately 8 inches in height, this 1960s porcelain by Goebel of West Germany depicts a French Dragoon of the Napoleonic Era. There were 30 regiments of these troops, and they fought on foot and from horseback. The 1805 date may indicate the dragoon depicted is one who served in the Battle of Austerlitz.
The original was made and designed by Gerhard Bochmann, one of Goebel's best known designers and sculptors. Excellent detail and hand-painting. Excellent condition, with no defect of any sort.
Marked with the Goebel V-Bee mark of the time, and 'by W. Goebel W. Germany'. ''1968' and 'LF10' are impressed into the bottom of the base, and the Bochmann name is impressed on the top of the base, which measures approximately 3 inches x 2 1/2 inches. The base is lettered 'Dragon 1805', the appropriate French spelling for Dragoon
