Figurine w/ Ormolu Arbor

This is a figurine made by Höchst in the 18th century. It is of a young gentleman clasping his hands together. He is nicely dressed in a striped shirt and pants with a pink coat over that while standing on a typical grassy base. Blue bows along the ends of the pants and on top of the shoes. He was later added to this superb ormolu arbor that is quite fancy and comes with bronze leaves and porcelain flowers. The figurine is in perfect condition - likely preserved by the protective cage. The ormolu arbor has a few porcelain flowers missing, is a bit lose and the flower in the very front is very lose. It looks stunning and displays perfectly! The entire piece is about 7.75 inches tall, 4.5 inches wide and 3.75 inches deep. The figurine is about 5.75 inches tall, 2.25 inches wide and 2.25 inches deep. I am sure it would be marked underneath with the under glaze blue wheel mark but I am not going to play around to get a look. The arbor is marked underneath as shown with J APPERT . Please email me for more information or other pictures.
