Porcelain Boy in Chair with Wooden Pipe #203-14 SOLD

Status: Sold
Fabulous bisque figure of a boy with pipe protruding out from his mouth sitting in chair backwards with arms resting on the back and legs with boots protruding from the sides of the chair. But his most important features are the excellent quality of the bisque porcelain, with very detailed face, high hat with wide brim and his wonderful waist coat. His lapels, ribbon on his hat, tie and boots are a lovely unusual peach color all edged in gold enameled trimming. The dark brown pipe is hand carved from wood and inserted into a hole in his mouth which was made specifically for that purpose. His pale green chair has been molded as if it was made from green tree branches with much detailing. (I have had other figures in the past that utilized this same green tree branch motif, namely 5 young girls sitting on a bench drinking tea and the same fine quality porcelain.) There are no markings on this early piece so I am not sure of the manufacturer. German made, c. 1880. 7 3/4" high. Great condition with no breaks or repairs. Close-ups of his wonderful face and pipe are also shown. This came from the fabulous collection of Dolores Smith of NH.
