Hoechst Boy w/Pitcher Figurine

This is a figurine made by Höchst in the 18th century. It is of a young gentleman or boy holding a pitcher in his right hand. The boy is nicely dressed in the typical fashion for this maker and the pitcher has a bit of a flower decoration to it. Typical rockwork and grass base to the figure. A superb piece and in perfect condition except for a tiny chip tot he spout of the pitcher. He was modeled by Melchior one of the best artists in porcelain of the 18th century! The piece is very well done in terms of modeling and hand painted to perfection! The figure is about 4.625 inches tall, 3 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Marked underneath with the blue wheel mark as well as some incised marks that are impossible to make out as shown. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
