On offer is a good size English porcelain figurine of a warrior from the 19th century with a background of extensive bocage. Included beside him is a banner, a shield and a rooster, all figures commonly associated with this type of figure. The figurine is modeled on and in the style of a Chelsea or Derby figurine from the 1760's and 1770's and may very well be a recast from the original mold as was commonly done in the 1850-1880 period. The base is in the correct style roccoco form and the bocage is very detailed with many parts as an 18th century piece would have been. The base has the patch marks on the bottom as would have been the case on an earlier Derby figurine. What is amazing is that everything is intact including the feet of the warrior and the rooster as well as details of the bocage.
Dimensions: The figurine is 8 1/4" high and about 4 3/4" wide at the widest point.
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. The color is good everywhere and of the appearance of an early figurine as is the gilding. The glaze is correct throughout. Within the bocage there are a few places where a tiny leaf broke off as is usually found although these are not apparent, There are a couple of tiny nicks to the front edge of his helmet which can only be seen on close inspection. No glued together feet, arms, hands etc.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
