Snowball Fight Boy Figurine

This is a figurine of a boy throwing snowballs at the frightened little girl I also have on the site made by Meissen in the 1920s during the Pfeiffer period. Originally modeled by Alfred König in the early 20th century it is officially called snwoball launcher and the counter part to the frightened girl figure . Sounds a bit like my kids except my daughter would be more likely to pummel my son after a while :) The boy is nicely dressed with striped pants, a colorful vest and a green jacket with a scarf wrapped around his neck and a hat on his head. He has his right arm stretched out with a snowball in his hand ready to launch it with three more balls in his left hand ready to go. A wooden slay / sled behind him on a snowy base. The piece is 5.5 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide and 2.25 inches deep. The figure is marked with the under glaze crossed swords mark with the dot between the top ends underneath the base as well as the usual impressed and incised marks as well as a painters mark 17. in red as shown. The figurine displays perfectly but sadly has been broken through the legs right about at the height of the sled as shown. Impossible to spot unless you have it right in front of your eyes. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $499
