Large Art Nouveau Lady w/ Dog Figurine

This is a figurine of a young lady made by Meissen in the very early 20th century. I could not find an exact year this piece was first modeled but a range from 1901 until 1904 seems to be where it is at. The figure was modeled by Jacob Ungerer and is of a young farmer or gardener holding a basket filled with vegetables in her left hand and a small bag in her right hand. A quail hunting dog by her side which is my favorite part of the piece. The piece is superbly modeled and hand painted in the Art Nouveau / Jugendstil style of the period. She is actually the nicest I could find of this model. An amazing looking piece and larger than many figures one finds from Meissen. The piece is 9.5 inches tall with the base having a diameter of 4.375 inches. The figurine is marked underneath with the under glaze crossed swords mark as well as the model number T62 and the usual impressed and painter's marks as shown. The figurine is in great condition with some damage to the leaves of the vegetable in the basket which is to be expected. I think they changed them soon after the early pieces as many models I saw did not have the intricate leave to their vegetables anymore. It is not obvious at all and the piece displays superbly! Please email me for more information or other pictures.
