A really fun figurine of one of the Zodiac signs - Pisces to be more exact. Made by Meissen in the later 20th century.The piece is really well modeled and hand painted to perfection. It is of a putto holding a fish in either hand with another fish under his foot as well as a wave under him. The putto is nude but has a robe over his shoulders with the one corner having the pisces sign in gold on it. He has a headband in his hair. Nice base with a bit of gold trim to it. It is a really fun piece from the series of all the zodiac signs that they made. They come along occasionally but not very often. The figure is in perfect condition which is amazing considering all that fine detail. The piece is 5.65 inches tall, 3 inches wide and 2.25 inches deep.
The figure is marked with the under glaze crossed swords mark underneath the base as well as the usual impressed numbers, etc. Of the period as shown. There is a loose bit of porcelain on the inside which rattles a bit if you turn the piece over.If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces.
