I love this piece representing a young boy on a fishing trip with his catch in his basket on his back with the excess fish laying on top of the basket and one in his hand and one on the base at his feet. The blue and white motif, the details in the painting, delicate beading around the edge of the hat and the gold trim lead me to believe it is French, however, it could be by a very fine German factory. There appears to be a mark on the rim of the bottom of the base but it is not clear enough to even be able to research it. The number "21" appears on the inside of the base. Quality abounds in every respect. The entire figurine is 13-3/4 inches tall. The piece is quite heavy due to the elaborate tiered base.
Condition: Excellent over with only two very old and insignificant surface lines on the right shoulder. They were possibly made during manufacturing. I found no major cracks, chips or breaks and no signs of restoration. A beautiful decorative figurine!
