Hot Chocolate Maker Figurine

This is a really nice figurine emblematic of the element of fire made by Meissen in the late 19th century. Not a rare figurine by any means but it's a nice figurine in great condition. The piece is of a putto / young man making hot chocolate. The kettle is heating over the fire on the stove while he has the stick in his hands to mix the drink in his cup. The hot chocolate pot is stitting on the table and he is sitting on a stool on a typical base with raised scrolls all around highlighted with gilding. I also have the other figures from this series on the site - air, water and earth.The figure is very well modeled and hand painted very nicely. it's a gorgeous piece! It looks stunning on its own or even nicer in the set. The figurine is 4 inches tall, 4.5 inches wide and 2.75 inches deep. It is marked with the crossed swords mark underneath the base (first choice) as well as the usual impressed / incised marks and a painter's mark as shown. The piece is in great condition with the very tip of the mixing stick missing (not obvious at all) and a small chip to the bottom edge of the base in a location that does not show when on display since it is in the back of the side. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $799
