Great early antique Meissen figurine dating to about c1741, and modeled by Eberlein, and also possibly Kaendler. Marked on base as shown and a rather scarce example. Measures almost 12 1/2" tall. Features Venus in gilt robe. Absolutely guaranteed a period example. There are old repairs to her arm, foot and torso, also cupids foot upon very close inspection. There are two nearly identical examples in the decorative arts museum in Prague, which are standing on identical plinths. A great early example! This is one of the four seasons. I have substantially reduced the price.....and this is a museum quality example!
