This extremely well-crafted and rare 19th century Meissen Porcelain sculpture of Cupid & Psyche was modeled by Gustav Deloy. Look at the delicate etchings, sculpting by one of the leading Modelers of the 19th century. Notice the pristine condition of Cupid & Psyche , the immaculately carved sculpture made from pure porcelain. The pure white porcelain yet it seems translucent, the way it has been carved.
Look at the beautiful dress of the Psyche, the way it has been draped and notice the gilded edges. See how the delicate folds in pure porcelain are giving a translucent effect to the dress. Look at the delicate folds and the fall of her exquisite dress. Don’t miss the curves of the figurine and her pristine wings that are painted pale pink on the edges. Each finger and facial aspects are clearly demarcated.Look at the wreath of flowers on Cupid’s hair and the loving expression on his face. See the beautiful set of wings that give an ethereal look to the figurine. See the delicate feathers that have been hand painted blue to accentuate the milky whiteness of the rest of the wings. Look at the colorful feathered arrows in the Cupid’s quiver. Don’t miss the delicate pink sash that holds the quiver close. The level of skill of the porcelain modeler can be seen with ease at Cupid & Psyche. The precision and symmetry is amazing.
Look at the tiny feet with each toe and corresponding muscles seen with ease while look at the muscles at the back of Cupid’s body. He sits on a tree stump and holds Psyche with his left hand, as he kisses her forehead. The complete structure is set upon a round porcelain base and has a gilded edge. Notice the finish and the glaze on the porcelain sculpture.
