Description

This is a very decorative and highly collectible Meissen group of porcelain sculptures, named “The Allegory of Water”, made from high quality Meissen porcelain, finely painted by hand and glazed, depicting a porcelain group consisting of two beautiful sculptures: a sitting woman with a fish in her hand, next to her a  putti – holds  a coral; the background depicts growing reeds. The piece is marked on the bottom side with the crossed-swords mark by Meissen in blue as well as engraved with the number 807 under the glaze and moreover numbered with the painter’s number 51. The piece is in good original condition and was restored only on a reef-leaf in an old, professional and invisible manner and is other than that in very good original condition. This collector’s item will therefore certainly make a wonderful addition to your selection of precious and unique antiques!
