Hoechst Wine Drinker Figurine

This is a figurine made by Höchst in the 18th century. It is of a gentleman pouring himself a drink - kind of like my Friday evening ritual :) He is well dressed in a head covering which matches his vest and stiped pants while standing on a typical grass and rock work base with a little tree stump in the back and a pink coat thrown down on the side.A stunning piece and very typical for this maker! He was modeled by Melchior one of the best artists in porcelain of the 18th century! The piece is modeled superbly and hand painted to perfection! The figure is about 5 inches tall, 2.125 inches wide and 2.25 inches deep. Marked underneath with the blue wheel mark as well as some incised marks as shown. The figurine is in great condition with two small nibbles to the base edge as shown. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
