Commedia Dell Arte Pantalone Figurine

This is a fun figurine from the famous commedia dell'arte series made by Meissen in the 20th century. This one here is of Pantalone aka Pantaloon is one of the most important principal characters of the Italian commedy - a greedy character from the high society that signifies money in the commedia dell arte . The piece here was originally modeled by the famous Kändler in the 18th century. Nicely modeled as if walking on a base with some applied flowers as decoration. He has a large beard and is wearing a black skull cap, a long red cloak over his superbly painted turquoise button down top, black short pants and yellow slippers. Very nicely modeled and hand painted as one would expect from the top maker. The figurine is in perfect condition and is 6.125 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches deep. The figure is marked with the under glaze crossed swords mark underneath the base as well as the usual impressed numbers as shown. First choice off course. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1249
