Home / Antique 18thC French Faience Nude Lady Figurine Figure France Fayence Figur - June 27, 2019
A faience figurine of a lady reading a book made by one of the French faience makers in the 18th century. It is hand painted very simply and elegantly. The figure has good detail as can be expected from a quality maker of this period. The piece is in good condition but the head seems to have been off as was the right arm but the restoration is so superb it is very hard to even figure out what exactly was wrong. Her right thumb is a bit odd shaped but might be original that way. Also two mostly paint chips to the book and one to the back of her cloth. Two very shallow small chips to the base underneath. It is marked as shown with a mark used often to copy that well known German maker. Also two incised lines. The figurine is 7.625 inches tall, 2.75 inches wide and 2.75 inches deep. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like Niderviller , Hannong and so on.
