Presenting a fabulous late 19th century French Biscuit porcelain sculpture after Auguste Moreau titled "The Water Bearer." Although this piece bears a Sevres factory mark, we believe that Samson & Cie produced it. Samson was a well-known Paris imitator of earlier masterpieces. The Sevres factory had manufactured molds of well-known marble and bronze sculptures by popular artists to be scaled down and reproduced in porcelain. It is believed that Samson used some of the Sevres factory molds to produce their own copies, so the quality was exceptional.

The Water Bearer is one of Moreau's most recognizable and popular figures: A delightful child carries a large amphora full of water, while a crack in the base spills its contents.

The sculpture is in excellent condition.

Size: 18 ¼" Height.
