By Dresden Porcelain Manufactory (German, active from 1865)
These beautiful Rococo style porcelain figures are charming decorative pieces and would make an excellent addition to any antique porcelain collection.
The set comprises twelve individual porcelain figures and groups, including figures dancing, playing musical instruments, holding flowers and fruit, and standing with animals. Each figure is modelled wearing traditional 18th Century clothing and stands on a naturalistic plinth base with gilt detailing around the edges.
The figures are stamped to the underside with a variety of marks for Dresden porcelain, including a triple-pointed crown mark, an 'R' mark and a crossed swords mark. There is no single official mark for 'Dresden porcelain', as the name refers to a collection of different porcelain decorating workshops operating out of the German town. The heights for the individual pieces are as follows, from left to right:
Figure of a jester: Height 15.5cm
Boy with bindle: Height 16cm
Bearded dancer: Height 13cm
