Damaged Lady Figurine

This is a cute figurine made by Höchst in the 18th century. It is of a lady holding a red ball in her right hand with the other hand in front of her chest. The figure is nicely dressed standing on a typical rock and grass base. A very good example of a Hoechst figurine but it sadly is meant more as a learning example due to extensive damage. Still - I get so many questions on Hochst pieces because their molds went all over the place and it is not easy to keep the different factories apart - so one needs a damaged piece like this to figure it all out since the books only get you so far. The figurine is about 4.25 inches tall, 2.25 inches wide and 1.625 inches deep. Marked underneath with the blue wheel mark as well as some incised marks as shown. She still looks nice but her head was off, her left hand has damage to the fingers, the blue bow is dammaged, broken through the waste and through the feetand supporting piece in the back as well as the damage to the left foot. All in all she looks amazing given what she has been through :) The figurine is in great condition with restorations to the top part of the sickle as well as one loop of the bow. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
