This lovely statue is very much in the style of Meissen, but I cannot separate it from the metal base it stands on to see a manufacturer's mark. It is German and mid to late 19th century in origin. The figurine stands on a metal base (probably brass) and is surrounded by metal leaves and flowers. this has all been mounted on a marble base.

The statue shows a young boy playing his mandolin. He is naked except for a small purple diaper or shorts. He has a very angelic face.

Although the statue dates from the 19th century I believe it was mounted on the base and turned into a boudoir lamp in the 1920's. There is a hole drilled on the rear of the metal base to thread electrical cord through. The metal ball in the center of the flower unscrews for attachment of a small electrical socket, if desired. You can either use it for that purpose or as a decorative item.

The entire piece measures 9" in height with the base having a 3 1/2" diameter. The boy measures 5" in height.

Condition is excellent with one tiny chip to the marble base.

Please Note: Advanced approval is required on any international shipments before placing of orders.

Thanks for looking.
