Hoechst Playing Catch Figurine

This is a figurine made by Hoechst in about 1785. This is the original figurine the Bock Wallendorf and Samson piece I ahve on this site are based on. It is very nice for comparison purposes that I have these three pieces by different makers so you guys can see the difference. Will try to get the Damm piece as well and maybe a Passau version then we have them all to compare :) This figurine is of a boy and girl playing catch. A nicely modelled and painted piece originally designed by Melchior. The figure is 5.875 inches tall, 4.75 inches wide and just under 4 inches deep. It is in superb condition with an amateurish repair to her right index finger. The figure is marked underneath with an underglaze blue wheel mark as well as some incised letters and numbers. The last picture is of all three figurines together. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
