Hoechst Huntress Figurine

This is the huntress to the hunter I already added to the site previously to make a perfect pair. It is a really nice figurine of a lady hunter made by Höchst around 1780. She has her dog by her side while leaning on a tree stump, a rifle in her left hand and a dead duck lying on the typical rock and grass base. The figure is nicely dressed and hand painted off course. The figurine is about 6.75 inches tall, 4 inches wide and 3.5 inches deep. Marked underneath with the blue wheel mark as well as an incised mark as shown. The figurine is in good condition but not as good as the male version. She is missing the index finger of her right hand, chipping to the bow on her hat, the rifle has damage which was restored previously to the butt end and the muzzle end has broken off again plus the arm around the area was broken and restored. The strap and firing mechanism are not perfect either but it's not very obvious. Some firing cracks from when the piece was made but the piece displays nicely! Please email me for more information or other pictures.
