Flowergirl Figurine

This is a figurine made by Höchst in the 18th century. It is of a young lady that is holding a some flowers in her apron as well as in her hand. She is well dressed and is standing on a typical grass base with a little tree stump in the back. A fun piece and very typical for this maker! She was modeled by Melchior one of the best artists in porcelain of the 18th century! The figure is about 4.5 inches tall, 1.625 inches wide and 1.625 inches deep. Marked underneath with the blue wheel mark that is a bit hard to see as well as some incised numbers and letters that one occasionally finds on their pieces. The figurine displays perfectly but she was broken off the base at some point and restored - something I didn't notice until I took the pictures - must be getting old :( Otherwise she is in great shape with a bit of damage to those delicate flower petals. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
