Lady w/ Dog Figurine

This is a nice figurine most likely made by the Hoechst factory in the mid 18th century . A very early piece still modeled by Russinger and from about 1760. It is an allegorical figure of one of the five senses in this case scent / smell and is of a lady with a small floral bouquet in her left hand that she is smelling while holding a nice porcelain jug / pitcher filled with more flowers in her right hand and on tops of her head. She is dressed in a free flowing robe hand painted with lots of flowers and a puce trim with a dog sitting on the base next to her. The base has some relief scroll work to the front highlighted with gilding. The figure is in good condition with some damage to the small flowers and the jug handle and right hand have been restored fairly well. One small chip to the edge of her robe and the dog's tail has been worked on as well. All in all in great condition for the age and definitely a very rare model. The piece is 5.75 inches tall, 2.25 inches wide and 2.125 inches deep. The figure is not marked but I finally found her though without the dog in one of my books. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
