Damm Boy with Apple

This is a great figurine made by Damm using the old Hoechst molds around the mid 19th century. Damm was actually not a porcelain but an fine earthenware maker. Thus these pieces look quite different than the old Hoechst ones and are much lighter in weight and also a bit bigger in size as earthenware did not shrink as much as porcelain during the firing process. Quite charming though and very collectable and rare.This is a figurine of a boy holding an apple (I think) in his lft hand while leaning on a tree stump. He is wearing some nice clothes as well as a hat with feathers on it. The figurine is painted very nicely and looks very much like the Hoechst pieces. He is 5.5 inches tall, 2.25 inches wide and 2.25 inches deep. Marked underneath with just the mold number 188 with a line under it which can be found in any good Damm book as being this figurine. The figurine is in top condition with a few minor glaze flakes - one on his finger, one on his hat and one on the base bottom edge so about as good as they come! Please email me for more information or other pictures.
