Damm Boy with Dog Figure

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 resting on his hand with his dog by his side also taking a little nap. Both are resting on a nice rock base with the rest of the base having some grasses painted on it. He is wearing some nice clothes must be his Sunday best :) The figurine is painted very nicely and looks very much like the Hoechst pieces. He is 4.375 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide and 3 inches deep. Marked underneath with the mold number 172 as well as the blue wheel mark with the letter D. which is their typical mark. The figurine is in good condition with the left leg having been restored, the dog's ears as well and a minor glaze nibble on his right shoulder. Displays perfectly and is in better shape than most one finds. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $749
