A fine antique German porcelain figure of a boy with a dog by world renowned makers Meissen and dating from the 19th century. The figure of a young boy in typical period dress stands mounted on a small square pedestal base and holds a basket of flowers in one hand and a biscuit in the other. The dog stands perched on a rock work pedestal and leans its front paws on the boy’s leg while reaching for the biscuit. The white porcelain figure is very finely hand painted in colored enamel with gilded highlights and naturalistic features. The figure has the customary underglaze blue crossed sword marks to the base along with various numbers.   

Provenance: Acquired from the UK Art market.

In good presentable condition with a professional restoration to the bow tied around the boy’s waist.
