Dancing Peasant Figurine

This is a figurine of a dancing peasant woman made by Meissen in 1910. A very ahrd to find figure that was first modeled by Kaendler in the mid 18th century. The lady is wearing a hat and fancy dress while standing on a base with a few leaves and flwoers to it. One of her hands is in the air while the other is holding up her floral skirt a little bit to make it easier to dance. A really nicely modeled piece and superbly hand painted. The figure is in great condition with one chipped leaf, another one that looks to have been chipped during the making as the edge is colored and an odd spot on the side of her left elbow area where it looks to ahve been stuck to another peice during the firing. They ground it down and it was painted over when it was painted so definitely from when it was made. Oddly enough still deemed a first choice! The piece displays perfectly and looks stunning! She is 7.5 inches tall, 3.375 inches wide and 2.75 inches deep. It is marked with the crossed swords anniversary mark underneath with the years 1710 and 1910 to either side. It also has the usual impressed and painter's marks underneath as shown. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $599
