Wallendorf Paul Boerner Figurine #1

This is a rare figurine made by Wallendorf around the mid 20th century. This figurine is special because it was made by the famous Emil Paul Börner who later worked at Meissen and became one of the most famous modellers of this time period going mostly under just Paul Boerner. He also made these types of figures for Volkstedt and KPM and they are very famous among collectors. This is actually the first time I have owned pieces by him from this maker but I ahve had plenty from the other ones. Some of my favorite modern pieces are by him! The figure is of a bearded figurine sitting on top of a large flask. He is wearing a Fez type hat and a funky outfit with rust and gold colored designs to it. I think he is meant to be a Turk. The side of the blanket under him has the four playing card suits designs to it - spades , clubs , hearts , and diamonds . Kind of like a modern day Harlequin figurine which might explain why these are so popular. Modeled in his typical fashion and painted to perfection!This figurine is in perfect condition. It is marked with the under glaze blue version of the Wallendorf mark of a W under a crown with the year 1764 (when the factory was originally founded) and Germany under that. Also impressed PB (for Paul Boerner), 217 as the model number and a monorgram of some sort as shown. The figure is 6.25 inches tall, 3.875 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
