Wallendorf Paul Boerner Figurine #2

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 have 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 pillow with his sword behind him while holding a large flask. He is wearing a turban so is probably meant to be a sultan. His outfit is hand painted with rust and gold colored designs to it. A superbly modeled figure with lots of details to it and hand painted to perfection. Modeled in Boerner's typical fashion!This figurine is in great condition with the tip of his swords being chipped as shown. It is towards the back and can't be seen when on display. Definitely a rare figure as I could not find this model when I searched for it. It is marked with the green 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) and 207 as the model number. The figure is 4.75 inches tall, 3.75 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
